Did you check the timing? Also make sure the injectors are putting out the correct amount of fuel. By oxygen sensor I'm assuming you replaced the MAF (mass air flow) sensor? Are all the vacuum lines in good shape and is the EGR vavlve actuating correctly (they can get gunked up)? Is air getting into the fuel lines somewhere? Is the engine not getting enough air when the turbo isn't on? Maybe your intake is clogged up but this isn't extremely likely since you'd notice power loss at higher speeds. What was done recently to the vehicle that might have caused this?

2006 Jetta TDI Stalls in gear


These little engines(although very good little engines)have a problem with carbon build up in the intake manifold. It builds up so bad it begins to choke the engine off. The only solution is to remove the intake and soak with a good solvent over night and will generally take you a good couple of hours to clean out to get to "like new" again. Once this is accomplished, it's like driving your car new again!!

1990 Pontiac 6000 2.5 after driving, car stalls when put in gear.


You need to replace the TCC solenoid under the side cover pan of the transmission. You can also unplug the wires that go to the transmission in the front. After that it will not go into overdrive but it will stay running at stop lights untill you have it repaired.

1994 Plymouth laser won't move forward when in gear..


SOUNDS LIKE THE TORQUE-CONVERTER WHICH ALLOWS THE CAR TO BE IN GEAR AT A RED LIGHT OR STOP SIGN AND NOT STALL. IF YOU HEAR A RATTLING TRY TO FIND OUT IF IT IS COMING FROM THE EXHAUST PIPE OR THE TRANSMISSION. OR IT COULD BE A CLOGGED CATALYTIC CONVERTER. I HOPE IT IS THE LESSER EXPENSIVE OF THE TWO. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED

pop off the distributer cap and dry it out well. Put it back on and it should work. This happened to my 97 jetta too...also if I go through large puddles at a quick speed this may happen too. There isn't good electrical contact with the moisture.

Stalls when i put it into gear


Is the check engine light on? If so I would have a scanner put on it and have the codes read.. Otherwise it may be hard to determine. It may be the vacuum actuator on the tranny. It would be good idea to have fuel pressure checked and also any vacuum hoses.

Try disconnecting the MAF sensor, if the problem clears either clean the MAF with brake clean or replace it, whichever works.
