Sounds like your vacuum assist brakes diaghram has sprung a leak. Pull the hose to the assist and plug it with a bolt or something. Then try it.

SOURCE: My Nissan starts and runs when I put the car into

Generally there is something wrong that makes the engine too weak for that resistance of putting it in gear.
That could be a misfiring cylinder, an intake manifold leak or cracked hose, a bad sensor like temperature, etc.
Does it idle smoothly?
It is better after it warms up?

But another possibility is that the tranmission is not going into the right gear. Try putting it into low instead of drive.
Of the torque converter bearing could be siezed, and not allowing the normal slippage it needs.

SOURCE: The car starts and runs real good, has 127k miles.

May have a worn out transmission
range selector or switch

That would be on the transaxle,
most likely

You use drive and reverse a lot,
so it would be a possible.

The switch is open at times, and you
can not start the car or stalls

Possible PCM/ECM problem


Unfortunately that's not the case. Your battery was obviously strong enough to start the truck , and once started, the charging system increases system voltage to its operating range of 12.5v - 13.8v. Your battery may have only failed its AMP capacity and needed to be changed for that reason only. What is most common on your vehicle is when the battery goes dead or has been removed ,the ECM loses its learned memory and starts fresh again when the battery is hooked up again. Your start and stall, and / or stall in reverse is a result of the "minimum air rate adjustment" needing readjustment to compensate for age and wear. The dealer changed your battery but also did the "min. air rate" at the same time because if they didn't , you would still have your initial complaint of stalling in reverse.

Car stalls when put in 'drive'


Check your air horn (big rubber boot) to the throttle body. It may have a crack on the underside and when you put it in drive and the engine torques to that side the crack opens and causes it to die.

2005 g6 stalling


I would suggest checking your wiring (core wire on the distributor, plug wires and the negative battery ground) I would imagine that the forward motion of the vehicle is possibly making your wires lose connectivity and making the car stall. Just a thought though.
