Q: Car stalling when in drive

Hello. If the engine turns off right when you put it into gear, then it may have an idling issue or it may have a bad torque converter clutch solenoid. If the vehicle seems to jump forward when this occurs, then it is the clutch. If it just seems to idle low and then die, and if you can keep it running by giving it gas, then it may be a dirty throttle body or a vacuum leak. Most of the time, it is the intake manifold gasket leaking that causes this to occur. A smoke test of the engine would help to isolate the problem. If you need to have this looked at, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose the car's stalling issue and perform the appropriate repairs.
