Why would a car start but stall when put into gear unless it sits a while?

Hey Bob==You don't say what kind of car it is but if it is a GM it can be the torque convertor needing a new solonoid. GoodluckJoe

No. A bad starter would cause the car not to start.

My girlfriends 97 was doing the same thing....it turned out to be the ignition switch.It started to stall intermittently (once every couple days)then yesterday it would not run at all unless you held the key in start position. Take a test drive and giggle the key to see if it shuts of.

Maybe a throttle positioning sensor? Is it hard to start? Does it start then stall?

No it cannot unless alternator is not charging the only power a diesel requires is for fuel cutoff solenoid
