Question about 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
When I go to start the car, I turn it over and it starts just fine. When I put my foot on the brake and put the transmission in drive the engine shuts off. I put it back in park position and it starts again. I put the car in reverse and it goes a few feet and the car engine stops again. The engine is running good in the park position. I checked the fuel pressure and the fuel pump is good. All the fluids are good (Oil, transmission) and I checked all of the vacuum lines, spark plug wires, the air filter and squeezed all the electrical connectors to make sure they weren't loose and everything checks out. The engine is not kicking out any codes because I don't get a check engine light on the dash. The vacuum line coming off the master cylinder drum to the engine is in good condition as well.
Try disconnecting the electrical connector at the transmission and see if it stall when you put it in gear. You will get a service engine light, but not to worry, it will go back out once you reconnect.
By disconnecting the wire connector we can tell if it is transmission related.
Good luck, let me know.
