i had the same problem with my tempest , would run in idle but when put into gear it would die. turned out to be a torque convertor switch , on the auto trans, i just unpluged it until i had the money to fix.

How'd you manage to do this? I'm having thi sproblem right now on my 1990 Chevrolet Corsica... happens all the time if I have to idle at lights and what not.
I had the same problem on my Skylark, theres a plug on the transmission you can unplug. its got 4 wires in a 2x2 design. You should be able to see it from in front of the car.
