What you have is a lock up solenoid failure,. The trans has a solenoid that locks up the trans torque converter when you reach certain speeds and unlocks it when you slow down or touch the brake. If that solenoid fails it will leave the torque converter locked up so it acts just like a standard trans when you con't put in the clutch.

It can be replaced and you can try to release it. Put in a jar of "Lube Guard" the red one for GM's and then let it run for a while. Then just as you put it into gear give it gas, it will lurch and if you are backing up to get it out it will stall when you come to a stop, but then put it in drive and do the same thing. Drive it around for a while and if it does not change then you will have to have the Loc-up solenoid replaced. Not a real easy job, but it can be done with out removing the trans

Hope this helps.

Check fuel filter, relay, fuel pump, sometimes the pump will run, but still too weak to run an engine at speed or underload. If fuel pressure checks out to be fine, look for a clogged catalytic converter.

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

WHY WOULD A 1992 CHEVY TRUCK STALL WHILE TOUCHING THE GAS IN GEAR AND NOT IN IDLE POSITION/


If it is an automatic trans, the idle air control valve should allow extra air into the intake to bump up the idle speed in drive.
If that is not happening, you could have dirt in the throttle body, or a faulty control valve.
