Car will crank and idle but soon as I put it in reverse it shuts off. Someone told me to replace the idler air control valve and I did. Now it cranks goes in reverse and neutral but when I put it in drive it stalls
Do you

Check fuel pressure with a gauge, auto parts rent it then clean throttle plate on both sides with choke cleaner and iac hole.
