this is generally caused by a failed convertor. the torque convertor is stuck in lock up and when you put it in gear its as if you let the clutch out in a manual with out pressing the gas. it is either a failed convertor or a failed lock up solenoid for the convertor.
oh ok well the question was completely clear I was thinking it died as soon as it was put into gear. how many mils are on the vehicle?
okay.. does it ju quit or does it seem like it hesitates a bt before shutting off. also does it immediately restart?
hmm do the lights on the dash stay illuminated as if in the on position or is everything dark?
Is the check engine light on and have you had it checked to see if there are any codes in the computer?
