Check the Switch on the side of the trans,
that tells the computer what gear your in.
It could be bad or need some type of shift
cable adjustment.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 1997 nissan pathfinder shuts off right after starting

There is a relay on the rh passenger side kick panel above the automatic transmission module that is controlled by the ECU through the MAF sensor that controls your fuel to the engine so the air / fuel mixture is correct. I fixed a pathfinder one time with a similar stalling problem.

SOURCE: 98 ford explorer will drive but you put in in

It is possible that the shift linkage is out of adjustment and is going into neutral and not making it to Reverse, try moving the gear selector slowly from park, through reverse to Neutral, and see if it will go into reverse somwhere in between. If this does not work ,you may have Reverse gear failure, a common problem with explorer/ranger transmissions. unfortunatly it requires rebuilding the transmission

set it up to tickover at 850,,950 rpm (in drive)
or it could be a gear box fult like the drive plate has a crack in it,,,letting the torque converter slap about,,,
chech tick over first,,, bont adjust tick over in gear unless the brakes are held hard on,,,

Shutting Down


Could be a relay, fuel pump, ignition coil, or several other things.
The charging system would only affect the condition of the battery.

97 ford explorer will not come out of 4wheeldrive what can i do


We had the same prob with ours. Put it in reverse drive for about 20 feet if possible, then stop and put into drive. Might have to do this a few times, it might work straight away. Good luck.

Enginge shuts off when in reverse


Does it do it when putting the car in drive? It could be your lockup solenoid or possibly a bad torque converter. Please do not take my word for it, take it to a licensed ford mechanic (have it towed I should say)
