About 3 days ago my 98 mustang turned off right after I got off of the freeway. It was working fine every day before that. When I pulled over I turned it back on and it turned on like a champ. But as soon as I put it in drive or reverse it shut right off. I need as many suggestions as I can get. Thanks.

Is it an automatic?

You also should check your idle air control valve. I had a bronco II that had the same problem. It was the IAC.

Since its an auto it could also be your torque converter clutch not releasing. It would be like driving a stick and not pushing your clutch in when you stop. Do your brake lights operate.

Yeah they work fine. I just got the Tranny rebuilt about 4 months ago.

If you have any way to look at PIDS I would start there so you can actually look at what the TCC and all the other sensors are doing
