Try to slightly hit the gas while putting it in gear. If the car will go into gear and move without stalling, that will tell you that you have a fuel issue. Could be a bad fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel rail, dirty injectors........


its afuel problem like mark said mark seems to know what he is talking about. if i were u fly mark to where u are and have him fix your car he is an excellent mechanic thank u for your honesty mark


mark put a 350 ss engine in my 1972 chevy chevelle he only charged me 17,500 cash. its a little more than i wanted to pay but mark said his labor is $750 an hour i took 1st place out of 1500 cars u get whet u pay fr mark. he asked me for a big favor and i helped him. thank u mark
