Why Engine stalls when put in gear

There are a number of reasons that this could happen. If there is no "Check Engine" light involved, then it may be difficult to assess. When you drop it into gear, does it stop violently, with a jerk, or does it sort of falter, stumble, and stall? It it stops with a jerk, then you may have a problem in the transmission with the overdrive lock-up. If it simply stumbles and stalls, then its more likely and engine management issue. It seems as though you should have some sort of Check Engine issue if it is the latter, though.

Car stalls

I experienced the exact same problem with mine. What I discovered is that the overdrive torque converter was not disengaging when I was coming up to a stop, thus making it stall. 2 fixes: First one is to disconnect the plug out by the radiator for the converter lock up solenoid, but this is not a good idea as you will no longer have overdrive. Second, (and best): Go to your Ponitac parts dept and tell them your problem; they will sell you a new converter lock-up solenoid that has been updated to correct this problem. Pontiac is aware of this and the new part makes a world of difference. Seems that they have added a small filter to keep dirt out of the solenoid, which is the main cause of the problem. Very common issue; easy to fix.
