Why do i have to press the gas before i put it in gear if i dont it dies smothes out at 50 mph

Is the shifter real loose and floppy?
If it is you may be starting out in 3rd gear instead of 1st!
Remove the shifter boot below the shifter look at the rods as you shift 1 thru 5 and Rev! Note the rod position as you shift thru the gears. You can do this while sitting idle, not driving!
If while tring to get it into 1st, take your hand and push the left rod farther forward has you move it into 1st gear! If you are able to get it into 1st, try driving forward, if it doesn't stall, chances are you need to replace the shifter do to the worn out Nylon Bushings in the shifter! If this doesn't help, take a look under the hood and see if the shifter cables are attached to the top of the shifter tower! Some times the clips holding the shifter cable to the trans come off and one of the cables will slide making it impossible to get it into 1st gear!
Hope this helps!
if you need photos of what I'm trying to explain, please reply back as soon as possible.

How do I remove the shifter from the transmission on a 1991 ford f150 4.9 liter, manual transmission

josh zehnie, The first thing you have to do is pull the carpet away from the shifter boot. You will see a screw on each corner of the boot that have to be removed. Lift the shifter boot and the gasket under it straight up as far as possible. You will now see the top of the transmission where the shifter connects. Again you will four bolts holding the plate that the shifter goes through. Remove these bolts, which are usually allen key type heads, and gently pull the shifter straight up being careful that you don't drop the plastic bushings into the transmission that are on each side of the bottom of the shifter. Reassembly is just as easy. Just be careful that you get the bushings back in place. Test the shifter before you replace the upper boot. Good luck with this.

92 Miata transmission shift boot replacement

The lower shifter boot is attached to the transmission by 3 10mm bolts. You will need to remove to center consoule and the upper shift boot that attaches to the car to be able to remove the lower boot. Then you can replace the lower boot.

Remove the center consule. Underneath the leather boot around the shifter lever is a rubber boot sealing the shifter lever to the tunnel. This prevents road dust, water, and fumes, etc. from entering the cockpit. Under this rubber boot is another rubber boot sealing the shifter lever to the transmission. It is possible one or both rubber boots are ruptured. Should replace both anyway, if one is. I assume you have a manual transmission.
