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'm assuming you meant a 1.8L 4V, if so the torgue settings for the head bolts are stage 1: 30 ft-lbs stage 2: 44 ft-lbs stage 3: Angle-tighten a further 90-degrees stage 4: Angle-tighten a further 90-degrees
Also I recommend you buy new cylinder head bolts from the vdub dealer, they say you don't have to with a gas engine but only with diesel engines you should, from my past experience it felt like the old bolts were going to snap off to be safe buy new ones. If you have never done this before "stage1" this means each bolt gets this one time, then after you have done each bolt at this torgue then you do the bolts again (stage 2) with this torgue ect. Remmeber to always cris cross your bolting and work from one side to the other the same time for each stage. Vdubs 4-ever !
