86 toyota pickup shakes and shuts off when put in gear

My husband just relpaced the engine in a 86 toyta pick up. The engine runs fine when in park but as soon as he puts it into gear it shakes and stalls. If he disconnects 1 vacum line it runs ok. What can he do to trouble shoot and find the problem? He's spent several hours on it and the manual does not have clear details as to the timing schematics and vacum lines. any help would be appreciated. Thank you

2 things come to mind.
1. I don't know from your description which engine it has but it may be that the distributor or vacuum advance is malfunctioning or blocked.
2. Timing is a few degrees off.
Hope this helps
Regards
Sam

Automatic ford ranger it starts then when you put it in gear it stalls.


One of the most common failures that can cause this problem that I have seen before is the Torque converter solenoid (TCC solenoid). This solenoid can stay stuck on and cause the torque converter to stay locked up, this will cause the vehicle to stall whenever it is put into gear. The vehicle will start and run fine in park or neutral but will stall out as soon as it is put into gear. This is the most common failure that can cause this.
Also a malfunctioning idle air control valve can cause this, if the valve isn't moving or responding to bump up the idle when put in gear it may cause the vehicle to stall out, the computer commands this valve to allow more air in to bump up the idle to compensate the load on theenginewhen put in gear, if it isn't moving or isnt moving fast enough the idle may be too low and could cause the engine to stall out.Have also seen bad crankshaft position sensor cause this ,as well as mass airflow sensor's ,TPS - throttle position sensor's . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair an have it diagnosed . No guess work .

Car Shakes Violently On 1St Gear


It sounds like you have a blown throw out bearing for the clutch operation. Fix it soon or you'll do a whole lot more damage to the drivetrain.

I just replaced the battery and alternater in my 2005 camery it ran fine for about 20 miles then it stalled out . it will start as long as it is in park but as soon as i put it in to drive or any other...


If the car runs at idle fine, and you put the car in gear the only thing that happens is that the engine flexes when that happens the throttle tube that is connected to the air box stretches if you loose the clamps of this tube and the air gets in. that air is not metering by the air flow meter then the engine dies I have seen that a lot.So check those two clamps.

Starting the car is a breeze, it starts and idles in park like it should. Once put into gear the engine shakes and almost stalls even accelarating. Once you get up to about 45mph it runs fine. Any ideas?


this is your throttle control senson. it needs to be replaced. It should be located on the throttle body assembly (carborator) and will have a wire clip attached to it and will be located right by the throttle cables.

Car hesitates/stalls when engine is warm and car starts to move.


Sounds like a bad motor mount, pop the hood and see if the motor shakes or moves rapidly when u put it in gear holding down the brake.
