My car was shutting off because the battery was old so I replaced it 2 days ago and now it seems to start real good but when I put it in drive the car shuts off. So I have to press the gas while shifting to drive to get the car going. Then I can drive for a while but when I put it into park on a slight hill the engine shuts?any ideas I also have a problem with the speed gauge it does not move at all when I am driving any advice?

Check ur alternator.



Edit: Well, is ur tank full of gas? If it is, good. Check your idle speed. Is it low? If it's any lower then 500 rpm in park, your car is more then likely going to stall, espically when shifting. Just turn the idle screw counter-clockwise (or for our british members, anti-clockwise) If that won't raise ur idle to 750, then you gotta adjust the throttle cable (12mm) and then adjust the idle screw to get it to 750 rpm.
