89 dodge daytona will set and idle but goes dead when you put it in drive.

Asked by goofymom1960 Jun 04, 2010 at 08:32 AM about the 1989 Dodge Daytona

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We have have replaced the throttle body and map and oxagen sensors. Could it be the hall effect that is making it go dead when you put it in drive. It's like it's not getting gas. What else could we try.
