Ford probe idles fine in park, but put into drive it dies, and when pushing on the accelerator it has about a half second delay
My 1990 Ford Probe idles fine in Park, Reverse and Neutral, but dies the second I put it in drive. I have been told that it might be a bad idle control motor (or circuit).

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?
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.
