On some of the newer card when your low on oil or transmission fluid the car will not move. Check your fluids and then try again. It worked fofor me, a mechanic told me this and I thought he was crazy but it worked

Why does the engine stops when I hit the brakes and the car is in gear?


Could be a bad vacuum leak (a vacuum leak would cause a rough idle or high idle). Or the TCC solenoid is stuck on. Have the codes read.

2000bmw323i shuts down when put in gear.


Automatic tranny? Check the neutral safety switch that only allows you to turn engine on when car is in neutral. If that switch/relay is malfunctioning it could turn off the ignition when you put gearshift into gear.

My forester when on reverse the engine shuts down


Is your Subaru automatic transmission or manual? If it is Automatic Gear box one possibility is the bands inside the gear box stay slight close causing the move stiff.It is Like the Handbrake activation. If this is the cause,please try to see you mechanic and ask for his help and advise,and do not try to do anything on your own. The other possibility is the handbrake itself,even you put it down might the cable do not release the handbrake shoes inside the drums and move stiff and as your reverse speed is low cuts out immediately.

1996 mercedes c280 dies when put in drive


Engine stalls or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Noise at shut down


The noise is caused by the engine running on after the ignition is shut off. It makes noise because the pistons are rattling in the cylinders from incorrect timing. This has nothing to do with the mechanical or electronic timing of the engine. The engine runs on either because of hot glowing carbon deposits in the cylinder head or because the engine was shut down when it was running too fast. Sometimes the carbon can be literally blown out by running the engine at high rpm for a short time. Put it in second gear and run it for a couple of miles on the highway. If this does not work the heads will have to be removed and the carbon cleaned out manually. The shut down when running too fast problem can be caused by the idle being set too high or by shutting the engine off before it has reached idle speed. If you can adjust the idle speed try reducing it. If not always hesitate before shutting the engine down to let it reach idle speed. Good Luck!

91 camry starts and shuts off when put in drive or reverse


I was an ASE master auto tech for 13yrs and have seen this problem before. It sounds like the idle air control valve on the intake manifold has stopped working and the idle speed is not being controlled(letting the engine idle too slow which causes a stall when put under a load such as putting it in gear). Try giving it a little throttle while putting it in gear if that works let off the throttle if it dies you will know the Idle Air controll is not working.
