Car cuts out when put in gear...
This might be a simple fix, but I wanted to see what yall gurus had to say on here...
I went to start my car this morning and it took a few tries to get it going, and then it would cut out. Then I finally got it to idle in park, but as soon as I put it in gear it would start to stutter and cut out on me. I would say that the engine would be jumping between 200-600 rpms as it was cutting out, before it completely died.
It is still a bit difficult to fire up, but once it does it idles fine. I can put it in gear and get the revs up while driving and it drives fine, but as soon as I slow down to a stop it idles rough, but I can pop in in neutral and it idles fine.
Any ideas? Carburetor perhaps? The choke maybe? I have the stock Autolite 2100 that was rebuilt 2 1/2 years ago...
