I had this problem before on my 95 Intrepid and I replaced the Idle Air Control Motor and all was well. Your Mass Airflow Sensor may also be the culprit. Your best bet would be to go to any common auto parts store, Advance, Auto Zone, the like and get a Hains manual for your specific Intrepid. It will show you how to easily and precisely check your input sensors that determine idle speed and get you running back to normal. $15-$20 here will be your BEST purchase for your car. You will thank yourself MANY times over for getting it. May well be the best purchase youll ever make for any auto you own now and in the future. Good Luck!!!

Does it kill the motor when you try to put it in gear now(fwd or rev)? Sounds like the torque converter clutch. Transmission part. Usually at about 150,000 miles. Hope that helps.

2000. Starts fine but why does it die when put in gear?

I think it is your transmission, i believe your torgue converter is locked up, what is happening, when u put it in gear the torgue from the engine is put into coverter, it has a series of cluthes inside that get tighter as force is applied by your transmission, however if the torgue converter is seized, then all of the motors energy is being applied to your trans, then to your axles, since your car is on the ground and not moving it kills the motor.

I have a 1996 ford f250. recently changed the fuel pump. it kills then its hard to start, when it does start it kills as soon as I put it into gear.

-if you believe that the pump might not work correctly. You need to check fuse pressure. If it's within its specification than there is other than the pump. It could be bad plug wire, spark plugs are too old.
bad injector.

Good luck

It dies when put in gear

have someone check it with a code reader to determine reason for the check engine light. it could be the source of your problems. the check engine light comes on so you know there is a problem. with most vehicles becoming more complex, the code reader can be used to pinpoint many problems that are not detected otherwise.
