Why does my 1993 mercury capri engine shut off when automatic transmission is put in any gear?

Asked by Feb 21, 2016 at 08:08 PM about the 1993 Mercury Capri 2 Dr STD Convertible

Question type: General

My 1993 mercury capri starts & idles perfectly. I can also "rev" engine to high RPMs with no problem when transmission is in "N" or "P". However, when transmission is put in any gear the engine shuts off. Any suggestions or solutions for my problem?

Thanks,
