    For the past two months my 2001 is shutting off when I put it in Drive or Reverse from of course the Parked position. I change the gear move my foot to the gas peddle to go and it shuts down. Please help, I have just had the Transmission completely rebuilt, Complete Engine Flush, Total Tune up and this has been put on a mechanics computer twice and nothing found. Just today made an appointment with Chrystler dealership and afraid to pay 95 bucks to hear cannot find anything again. HELP

You should have it checked at a dealer for trouble codes. It could be a bad sensor, but there are several that can cause this. An oxygen sensor is high on the list. Also you do not say how many miles are on the van, but spark plugs or plug wires are possible.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the automatic transmission fluid. If the fluid is burnt, the car hesitates specially on cold start ups. Once replaced, a smooth ride and shifting will be noticeable.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

1991 dodge colt won't idle when engine is cold.

probably oil, it may be too thick when it's cold but once it warms up it liquefies and your engine runs smoothly. you could try changing oil, I'm guessing if you have a high performance oil the chances this is the problem may be greater since high performance things are usually geared towards working well when everything is hot
