If a car sound good and idles good but when put in gear will only move slow until it dies can this be a transmission problem?

The trans won't cause it to die. Try changing the fuel filter.

My trusted transmission shop says don't touch the transmission fluid or filter until you have a problem! Otherwise if you start messing with it you will cause a problem. His advice has worked for me for 100k miles or more on all my cars!

If the transmission is in neutral and the engine is racing would indicate that your throttle body cable is binding somewhere. Check the assembly, check by the gas pedal. I have checked with a dealer on the same problem. I have a 96 sc2 and it does the same thing. They told me it idles down due to the engine computer. They said if it is cold outside it will idle high like this. Once it started getting warm outside mine stopped doing this. Please let me know if you have found out anything. Mine was doing the same thing. I changed the temp sensor and it worked. yours is probably cracked.

A flashing D4 light indicates a problem with the transmission. It may just need the transmission fluid changed or it may be a more serious problem. I Recommend you seek professional help and do not drive this vehicle until you get the problem repaired or you may do serious damage to the transmission.
