I have seen this problem in a lot of cars in the transmission world. If you can feel any kind of a bind before the engine dies there's a chance you might have a lockup problem with your torque converter. This is just an idea for somewhere to start.

SOURCE: 1991 Dodge Dakota dies when shifting from park

If it runs down highway fine, but just stalls when off throttle, turning, heater on, etc., I'd pull I.A.C. motor off and clean with throttle body cleaner & retry it. Clean port it came out of at same time too. if it cures it even temporarily, and does it again, replace IAC motor.

SOURCE: Shifts hard from 2nd to 1st, then dies when you stop

The transmission control module is adaptable. This is a real common complaint with the A604. You need to take the vehicle to a shop with a scan tool and have the TCM ran through a quick learn adaptive reset procedure. The dying problem is likely a bad crank sensor

SOURCE: car is stuck in Park. Will not shift after losing

Your car will only shift out of park with the brake pedal down. If this does not release it, there is a bypass switch that is located in your center console near your gear selector. You'll actually have to remove your center console in order to access this bypass switch.

SOURCE: shifts into gear extreemly hard

Often the fluid type can do that. If you just had the fluid changed recently, it's likely that the wrong fluid was used (they all have different friction coefficients) If I remember correctly Chrysler makes an additive that will help with harsh shifting as well.
If not a fluid problem, then likely you have a pressure control problem inside the unit that would need to be checked by a shop using gauges. (could be as simple as a "kick-down"cable adjustment to correct)

1997 Carolla- engine dies when shift to reverse or drive, starts again when put in park. Is this a transmission problem or starter/ignition problem?


There is a switch that only only allows you to start the engine in Park or Neutral. It sounds as if yours is faulty or has a bad connection. Finding it will be the problem.

Car will not start in park, but will start in neutrel. Car will die as soon as you put it in reverse.


have your neutral safety switch checked or adjusted. if engine dies as soon as it is shifted to reverse, does it so the same when you shift it to drive? if on reverse only, idle is set too low.
