My car will turn on and idle if it is in park, I can even apply pressure to the gas. But when I put it into drive, and apply pressure to the gas then the car shuts off. I have checked all my fluids and they are all full and my car has a full tank of gas. But I cannot figure out why it won’t start?
Do you

It sounds like it could be a MAP sensor, or you have a vacuum leak. We need to check for codes first, this guide can help us get started in fixing the car:
