Sounds like the idle air control vavle. when you put a load on the engine such as putting it in gear or using the ac or turning sharply, the iac is suppose to let more air in so the engine will idle up a little. if its stuck and you load the engine by pulling it in gear it will let the idle drop and possibly die.

1965 dodge coronet has new electric fuel pump and new carb what can cause the car to idle but die when drop on gear


If it is an automatic transmission the idle speed setting is set with the parking brake set and the auto transmission in drive per book speed. Make sure the spark timing advance is set per spec and the idle mixture is not set too lean.

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

The idle drops when i put it in gear almost stalling the engine


That is normal, in park or neutral there is no resistance on the engine when you put it in gear there is resistance because the car wants to move. Also when you turn on the ac that turns on the compressor that is run off the belts of the engine so it puts more resistance on the engine. Low idle is not a problem unless the engine dies.
