My car will not idle very well. It goes very low and dies when you put it into gear. What could be tha problem?

Try adjusting the A/F mixture screw and the curb idle screw

Close the a/f mix screw then back out 2 turns and adjust the idle speed to specs now start closing the a/f screw slowly till it starts missing then back out 1/4 turn adjust the idle speed again do this with the other a/f mix screw

Also might want to check the PCV valve and make sure no vacuum leaks
