Perhaps the transmission/torque converter is engaged and preventing the motor from spinning. B Clear.

AnswerI had same problem, It was the ignition module. car ran fine in neutral,as soon as i put car in gear it would stall. AnswerI would check the neutral safety switch on the top of the transmission. It costs around 100 dollars so be sure that's what it is before buying one. I would try to get a used one if possible. The switch doesn't allow the car to crank in gear. If the switch is bad it could work in reverse......ITS A LONG SHOT.....BUT COULD BE A PART OF THE PROBLEM.....

AnswerI am having the same intermittent problem. My mechanic cleaned and lubricated the idle motor to prevent it from sticking. So far, this seems to have corrected the problem.

Mazda did. in japan. unlike the 626, which is made in the usa, the millenia was built in japan. the difference is quality is huge. we had a 96 626. one of the worst cars we have ever owned. built like a Buick. rattles, squeaks, pieces fall off, running problems. the millenia is the complete opposite. fit and finish is superb. excellent power, brakes, quiet, smooth. everything a Buick wants to be.
