The torque converter clutch (TCC) inside the torque converter, also referred to as the "damper clutch" or "lockup clutch", functions to lock the input and output sections of the torque converter together to provide improved fuel economy.
If you are servicing a transaxle with either of the following conditions, follow the repair procedure shown below:
^ Torque converter clutch does not engage when driving at steady speed on the highway. ^ Engine stalls when coming to a stop or when shifting into Drive or Reverse

1. Check the ATF level when the engine is idling in "N" according to TSB 01-40-013. Adjust the ATF level as needed.

I just rebuilt the motor and trans and now it dose not have rev. and dies when i put it into gear

Could be a bad torque converter clutch. When they get stuck, the tourque conveter is locked up all the time and will cause the engine to stall when you hold the brake and the trany is in gear. Did you replace the torque converter during the rebuild?
