Yes, as soon as you put it in Reverse it dies. And as soon as you put it in drive it dies. Any gear at all. It does not sputter at all. It just dies.

Take a look at the transmission app I posted and let me know what transmission you have. It sounds like a torque convertor issue though.

I dont know the schematics of the transmission. I have the registration and it says body type 2H, type 120, mp G, class AB. Is there a specific place I can find this information. Also. Once this car warms up for like 10 to 15 minutes then it will go into gear and run perfect. We tried this yesterday and it didnt work. But today she went back out and tried and it worked after idling for 15 minutes.
