bad carb adjustment or a dirty carb (Get a tune up or try a bottle of sea foam from your local auto store) *Some older cars with lock-up torque converters can have a failed TCC (torque converter clutch) circuit. This stalls the engine as the converter is locked solid, connecting the engine to the wheels.

A low idle speed can cause this.

I have a 95 Mitsubishi Galant that will idle fine but dies when you put it into gear I have already replaced the idle air control motor could it be the computer Or the transmission?

No, you may have to check your idle. You can change the idle so when you put it into gear it will not die. You must make sure that the engine is warm when you adjust the idle or it may make it hard to start when the engine is cold. When it idles in park or neutral it should sound a little higher than when it it idles in gear or drive or reverse.

Where is the starter in a car?

At the back end of the engine is a large ring gear connected to the engine crankshaft. If there is a starter (some engines do not have starters) it will be mounted in the engine such that the bendix gear of the starter can engage the ring gear and spin the crankshaft. It's called a bendix because it jumps out to engage the ring gear (while the starter motor is running) and retracts off of the ring gear once the engine is running (starter motor no longer running). It is typically access from under the car. If you must replace it, let the engine cool off first. Otherwise the starter will be just as hot as the engine is.

Starter motor ring gear?

Starter motor ring gear is a large gear cog that fits around the circumference of the flywheel on rear of engine. When the starter motor spins, its 'Bendix' engages this gear to rotate the crankshaft..

1993 Volvo 240 that makes a single clunk right as the engine turns over Otherwise it runs and idles fine What could cause this clunk?

If it doesn't repeat the sound while the engine is running, especially accelarating or decellerating, it is probably related to the starter pinion gear or the flywheel/flexplate ring gear. When the starter gear engages the flywheel/flexplate, there is a small portion of gear tooth missing. It starts to catch and slips, slamming into the next gear and then engaging. Eventually, you'll lose another and yet another tooth, producing a dead spot to an extent the car won't start.
