Assuming that the engine runs fine when in park with no signs of any problems then dies completely when shifted to drive then the most likely problem would be a locked up torque converter. I recommend giving it a little thottle when shifting to drive to see if any change. If it still dies then I would look at the torque converter as your cause. If it runs okay with a little throttle applied then we may need to look else where. Let me know what happens when you try this and I will reply back. Thanks
