If it runs fine in park, and neutral but stalls after the car warms up and your in gear, that could be the transmission shift solenoid that has failed, locking up the torque convertor at idle. Easy fix. But it might be much worse and time for a rebuild. How is the trans fluid, nice and deep red color?


It looks to be ok but this problem didnt start until it overheated one day and i changed thermostat and the radiator but i was thinking tht the problem might have sumthing to do with this area also the heat in the car isn't working if tht matters...

Are all the wires and sensors hooked up properly? If not, the computer may be getting false reading and trying to compensate which will cause strange things to happen. Make sure the sensors are clean connected and properly. The hose to the heater should be connected to the same place as where it was removed.
