How do you determine what is causing a 1989 Cavalier to stall when put in Drive?
I had a similar issue with my 1994 cavalier, it ran well during short trios, but after she was warmed up, and went a distance, she would stall out at red lights and in slow moving traffic. We found out that my torque converter locked up and now that problem has cost my a new tranny, because it started slipping, becasue of the torque converter. Now after fixing the tranny, we can't get it to turn over, it has no fire to start.
i had a miracle mechanic took him 3 min. to fix the problem after 5 different mechanics tried . all he did was to disconnect the transmission sensor switch and the car hasn't giving any problems ever.

Replace any bad motor mounts and you should be OK.
overheating it would. Or if it was stick not being in the right gear trying to find the system causing it would help, if the air intake or filter was so clogged it couldn't suck air it could stall, and low fuel pressure could also make it stall rather slowly. Bad electrical connections could cause a quicker stall.

Try changing the fuel filter. I have a 1984 Mustang with 3.8L V6. On some older cars you tend to accumulate a lot of crud in bottom on fuel tank. And when you get to about 1/4 tank some of it comes up. I changed 2 filters in less than 6 weeks and have not had the problem again. Take a look at the motor mounts.
