Start out simple,look at your gas cap to see if the vent is plugged,after that have the crank sensor and electric fuel pump checked.If your check engine light went on have the code looked up that's on the computer.Some auto parts stores do it for free(Advanced Auto where I live).

Vehicle is started while in neutral then is engaged to first gear and this is when the vehicle die


I must assume the car is a A/T automatic transmission?
Ok this is called stalling.
the one key fact is missing, can the fast right foot , make the car
drive fast up hills. that is you prevent the stall and drive.?
lacking this fact, makes all below too long........

the 95 sidekicks cam with 2 engines.
one is TBI 8v and other is 16v MPI, the repair is totally different on these cars, due to vastly different EFI systems.

so i will answer in the generic , lacking these facts.
1: idle speed controls dead.
2: engine problems, (low compression)
3: never ever tuned up? never did the 60,000 mile service.?
4: same as #3 timing belt slipped,
5: spark parts never replaced. plugs, wires ,cap, and rotor.?
6: weak fuel pressure do to never changing the fuel filter ever.
7: clogged injectors.
8: if MPI engine, huge air leaks in the induction (from behind the MAF all the way to the intake valves.. bad news on MPI , air leaks.
aka: vacuum leaks.
just a short list. for now.
got tool;s?

Hi,
You would use drive 4 for highway driving.
Drive 3 is good for in town driving with stop and go traffic.
Drive 1and 2 are for snowy and muddy conditions at slow speeds.

Cold auto Transmission won't shift into 3 gear until after driving 1 mile or so (driving at about 35 mgh) pickup then downshifts from 3 to 2nd then back to 3rd a few times untill I get to work (7 miles...


Sounds like a bad speed sensor. Perform an ODBII scan soon. ECU should delay upshift until coolant temp senses warm up. It will not work right unless a signal is present from speed sensor.
