Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
the car starts right up. But when i put my foot on the brake to put it in gear it cuts off.

You may have a hole in the brake booster rubber diaphragm. It will be exposed to air when you step on the brake, which causes a huge vacuum leak and then your engine dies. This is where I would start.
