Have you tried cleaning out your throttle body and plenum. That is a good quick fix for throttle responce. Especially the throttle body. They make some pretty good cleaning chemicals to do this.

duck tape on the air intake. I just fixed mine. There is a crack on the intake that lets too much air in when you put it in drive that makes the car stall. Try it it works.

Why does my 91 honda accord die once i put it in drive


With auto transmitters the problem that usually will make that occur is checking on your stall converter...i would have that checked.

My 99 ford explorer cuts out and dies when accelerating in drive


You may have dirty or clogged fuel injectors, may also be problems with the ignition system. Might also check the fuel pressure to make sure the fuel pump is working correctly.

1993 (2.0l 4 cyl) Ford Probe Wont Idle when warm.


Josh, Did you output the car's diagnostic codes before you reset the computer?
Just to confirm: your car has the "FS" engine - 1991cc double overhead cams?
built on the Mazda "GE" platform?
does your car have an "engine check light" or "MIL" on the dashboard? if so where and what does it look like and what does do ? ie: comes on when ignition is turned on & goes out after engine starts. or comes & goes out after x seconds. etc etc
are you 5sp manual or auto trans?

does your car have a diagnostic plug with a flip open lid just behind the battery near the front left suspension tower?

1994 Ford Probe takes 2-3 seconds to move


Bad News, your hydraulic pump on your transmission is wearing out. The only solution is a overhaul. I have a Subaru in the same condition, if you can live with it, do it. Just in case check the transmission fluid level.
