My 1990 Probe will go in reverse but when I put it in dirve it will
hesitate and stall. I took it to a Transmission shop and they
recommened replacement or overhaul. I decided to replace it. I
purchased a Reconditioned transmission/torque converter and the had it
installed. The same problem existed. The Transmission shop thanks
that it may be an electrical problem. I want to investigate other
suggestions first. 2 years ago I experience a simular thing but ended
up replacing the throttle body. Is this a transmission issue or
something else. The engine runs fine in idle and reverse with no
engine warning light.

I had the same problem with my 89 probe. I found a crack in the air
intake hose right after the air cleaner. it would idle fine but as
soon as it was put in drive it would stall. The engine moved just
enough in gear to open up the crack in the hose and cause it to stall.
In reverse the engine moved in a differnent direction and did not
increase the crack. I taped it with duct tape and the problem was
Good luck. BTW how many miles on the car?
