What cause a motor to try to quit running when put in gear but idles good in park?

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.
