    U may have a sludged up automatic idle speed control valve, do the following procedure and see if it clears the problem, 99% of the time it does.

    I want you to get a can of intake cleaner (ABOUT $5.00) from any local auto parts store like NAPA or Carquest, do not use carburetor spray, intake cleaner only or u will damage the Teflon coating inside the throttle valve and air bypass valve, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

I'm assuming that your car is has automatic transmission, then, put car in neutral get a rolling start then switch to "D" (drive). If car stays running your problem could be a solenoid switch in transmission.

The transmission have a lokc-up solenoid; this solenoid energizes a circuit which engages a clutch in the torque converter. When these solenoids go bad the torque converter does not release it's clutch and therefore your vehicle tries to come to a stop and ''stall''. This would be like releasing a clutch on a stick shift transmission and keeping the brake on. Remove the side cover and replace the solenoid.

Hope this clues help to solve it.

I changed the airfilter for a cone one now it cuts out when i put it in gear so i put the original one back on still cutting out whats wrong with it


Most auto boxes have a device that bumps up the idle speed when pulled into gear. Some work on engine vacuum, some are part of the engine management. If it was OK before you started then retrace your steps.

2000 chrysler concorde starts up then cuts off when put in gear. starts back up only with a jump, then cuts off when put in gear. What is the problem?


Could be a faulty torque converter but that would not explain having to use a jumper. Have you let the engine run for 5 or 10 min before shifting into gear ?

sounds like the lockup converter is not releasing when you stop, like stopping with a stick shift and not pushing in the clutch. lockup solenoid most likely. Could just disconnect the lockup sol. (won't lock up at all) or replace the solenoid.

My husband turned off our Chevy Trailblazer without putting it in gear and now it won''t start and the gear shift is lock up. What do you do to fix it????


first make sure battery isn't dead because if he cut it off in gear then the switch couldn't cut the power off and it'll run the battery down and there is a electrical solenoid that allows the shifter to move if theres no voltage than the shifter want go into park and the ignition switch want turn off.

Hi, I have a 55 plate HDI 2LITRE expert van , today it just cut out when I put it into second gear , it starts fine put it into first move off and as soon as I go into second it cuts out, if I go from ist...


check around the selector area at the gearbox and where the shift lever sits to see if a harnes section or wire is getting trapped, chafed, or crushed, or if a plug is being pulled when 2nd is selected. The actual gears and box have NO way to cut the engine out so the moving external parts on the gearbox or shift must be causing an electrical cut out by interfering with nearby components.
