The car is not drivable. It will start, but when put in drive or reverse it loses power and shuts off.

    Is the 'check engine' light on? When it 'loses power and shuts off' , is it like someone's popping the clutch on a manual trans. while holding the brake? If so ,have the TCM scanned for codes , as #2 said it may be a lock-up problem with the torque converter clutch SYSTEM. If the check engine light IS on you may want to have that diagnosed first. Post codes so we can help.
