All though it is possible these trans. Were not known to have this problem, a lot would depend on how the engine dies, sputters and then dies, or dies like something grabbed the crankshaft and stopped it?

As the truck is put in gear, I can feel the transmission triing to engage at the same the rpms go down and then the motor cuts off. I thought about that real hard bout it being a motor issue. That has me puzzled because the truck in neutral will rev up to 4000 rpms with no sputtering and it fires right up smoothly. Even let the truck warm up properly before triing to put the truck in gear but and then its like you feel it go into gear because the truck lurches as it cuts off thats why I thought it might be the torque converter being seized up. What would stop the crankshaft when the truck is put in drive? And then I wont be able to get back to the truck untill tuesday next wk
