My car will idle in park, but stalls when I switch gears. Automatic gear. You have to ride brake and accelerator. What is wrong?
Hi Jan ... Here's a troubleshooting guide for engine stalling. Hopefully it will get you down the path to your solution ... Good luck! http://autorepair.about.com/cs/troubleshooting/a/bl303b.htm
you have a bad TCC. torqu converter clutch, the fix is replace your torqu converter.
Possible vacuum leak. Will need to use a smoke machine to find it. So, take it to a shop....they have those.
Sounds like a torque converter... Get that replaced and it should be fine.
Agreed your torque converter is putting too much load on the car at idle. Stator is probably seized.
