Check the catalytic converter to see if it has restricted flow, i have had the same problem in the past with a car, it would start and idle great, i could rev the car up but the minute i put it in gear it wanted to die, and my cat was clogged

1988 Cutlass Calais. Motor runs fine on start up.


Sounds like the veh is loading up on fuel make sure coolant sensor to computer is reading right it could be choking the car.Also check for clean throttle body But what the most likely cause is the mass air flow sensor. Blow it out now do this gently there is a wire in there thats what you want clean. dont spray any liquids on it THANK TIM

I have a 1989 jeep cherokee. Engine runs fine when in park but as soon as you put it into gear it will die. Put it back in park and it will start right back up and run fine. Any ideas?


I would suggest checking for carbon build up around the throttle plate edges and back of throttle plate.it can be cleaned with throttle plate cleaner by CRC company and a old toothbrush.

Car Starts but wont go.


It could be a couple things. There may be a vaccuum leak in the fuel system such as a bad EGR or PCV valve or the throttle position sensor. I'm leaning towards the throttle position sensor needing replaced. The throttle position sensor reads how far you're pressing on the gas peddle and then feeds that to the computer telling it how much gas to feed to the engine. If that sensor isnt working right then your car will get enough gas to start and idle but will starve for gas as soon as you try drive and will then stall.

1998 beetle throttle 2.0


the car's computer needs to relearn it's correct idle allow to run for several minutes and the computer's RAM will return and idle will be fine. On the automatic transmission it may take several miles of driving to shift normally as the computer learns and adapts. Loss of battery voltage can cause all sorts of running problems until this happens.
