What you are describing is a problem in the transmission and the clutches are stuck together so when put in gear it stalls. If it is fine until put into gear then this is the most likely problem.
Have you checked the fluid level of the transmission?
I see you re listed as you must not have liked the answer?
I will send the question to the other experts as I assume you want another opinion.
Hello, I am Dodgetech 2875!
I have to disagree with the answer you received! Burnt or stuck clutches in the transmission will not cause this!!
If your clutches were burnt or stuck together the transmission would not stall when selecting drive or reverse. The problem is related to your torque converter clutch staying engaged. This will not require a complete rebuild. Most of the time it is related to the torque converter itself, but could also be caused by a stuck valve in the valve body. When the torque converter clutch is staying locked up, it will kill the engine as soon as you put it in gear.
I would stop at your local transmission shop and have them verify my diagnoses. From the symptoms you provided, the torque converter clutch is staying engaged!
I hope this helps!
