Engine dies when you put the gearshift in drive? Many trans have electronics for position of manual lever. Used to be MLP sensor or equivalent. Many call them TR sensor now. An OBD II test can be run. You may need specific trans tests with japanese trans before year 2000. The computer could be a separate unit? You must call trans specialist or your dealer.

Put on Drive still engine running but does not move,Sir. Only move on reverse,1st and 2nd gear. Keep on doing all these and it will accidentally run in a DRIVE position. And that takes a lot of times trying. And the Drive gear still not working properly. Once I am running on that drive gear on the street no problem. Seems like running good and no problem. But every time I stopped and start it again it will do the same problem,.Sir. Thank you so much for your great help. I will try to get the mechanic to do ur suggestion, Fe Teresa
