Since you are under the 2005 mini van column, you have a 3.8l v6 or 3.3l v6, with a 41te trans, Is this a high mileage vehicle, if so, you have a issue with the trans torque convertor locking up when put into drive, there is a valve in the vavle body causing this, its called TCC valve, they tend to stick if the trans has not been serviced at change intervals, only a experinced tech should attempt this, I assume this happens in rev to, even if you give a little of gas pedal before putting in gear,( drive), it still stalls, it is in the vale body. Iv'e seen this happen many times and expensive to fix. there must be a mill light on with a trans code. GOOD LUCK RDJRP

Are you sure you put the oil in the engine and not the transmission, check both the engine and trans dip sticks to make sure they are at the correct level.

Sputtered out and now it won't stay running; dies when put in gear.


Mass air flow , crank sensor . I wouldn't discount anything . Having a scan tool that can view engine sensor data would be a great help too , testing fuel pressure and flow and back pressure test the exhaust .

1996 mercedes c280 dies when put in drive


Engine stalls or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

The car starts fine and runs good but when i come to a stop it will die, but here is the problem it will start right back up but when i put it in gear r,d,1,2, the car will just die again.


Your solenoids inside the transmission may be bad, try to unplug the 4 wire connector to the front of the transmission to see if the problem still continues, if it doesn't then its the solenoids causing the problem, they stay engaged into gear thus car dies and when you put on park, it starts fine again, when you shift it dies again. I had the same problem, changed the all solenoids fix my problem. Hope it helps.
