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.

Just a little suggestion. IF this is a 1993 it is fuel injected.the car starts and runs for a few seconds and then dies. You are on the right track by checking the spark and fuel delivery. If you have both of these when it dies i would check injector pulse. the use of a noid light would be the quickes method.They can be purched at the parts house for pretty cheep.If you have no injector pulse then it cuts the fuel off to the engine.Replace the ignition module (contols spark and injector pulse) i have ran across a few that will lose only one of the outputs, insted of both of them. Now if you have fuel and fire, i would check to see if the cat. converter is damaged or cloged thus restricting the exhaust and stalling the engine. Hope this helpes.

Have you tried vacuum leak test?
You have already changed the most common problematic parts for your code.
What you would need is a common shop propane torch.
How you use.
1. Start your engine.
2.now take the propane torch (Don't light it!!!) crack open the valve.
3. point the valve at each vacuum fitting on the intake manifold.
what your doing is if there is a leak, the propane will be sucked into it.
This will cause the ideal to rise. When it rises you have found your leak.
Also check where the intake meets the head.
If you have a leak it will cause the effected cylinder to run very lean (to much air to fuel mixture) and cause your misfired cylinder.
I hope this help. Give feed back if this helps anyone. Fixya
