No Worry, many times the other guys jump in and give other possibilities too!
Had same issue w/ Ex-Girlfriends '82 Mustang 200 CID (Straight 6 w/Carb)
You could increase the RPMs, and yank it into "D". It would lurch forward. Instant die. Like dumping the clutch on my Jeep.
I jacked up the Rear (drive wheels) and tried it (w/ higher RPMs), it would GRAB and rotate the wheels at 1:1 ratio with the engine. In my Jeep, that would be IMMEDIATE 3rd gear.I'm sure that's the same as an automatic. Replaced it w/ a non-locking converter
Is yours doing the "Mega Jerk Thing" when pulled into drive?
If you can get it moving, if you come to a stop. Even a good ways before a stop, does it start Jerking real bad when RPMs get down to. Lets say 600 on down. Or will it idle in gear?
Reckon you tried the other gears?
Will your/ was it designed to start in NEUTRAL, as in other automatics. If it does, what about catching something other than reverse or drive?
I ain't no tranny man, by any means---Just attempting to see if it acts like a lock-up or is it more like the IAC not able to react instantly to keep idle constant 'cause it's maybe carbon-ed up (it's EZ to remove, and clean) Have you tried?
