    Hello, I live in Port Perry and I could use some old school help on my 76 Dodge Dart 318. I've been trying to figure out why the engine stalls when I put it into gear and I've run out of ideas. There isn't anyone around that knows how to work on this thing,dealership, aftermarket garages other than me. Here's what I have done up until now and not only to correct this problem.
    compression good, spark plugs, wire set, rotor, distributor cap, ignition coil, ignition module, set pick up gap because reluctor was touching pick up, ballast resistor, pcv, fuel electric pump, 7 psi pressure checked, new fuel filter, rebuilt carb, double checked float level and for holes, idles mint, starts mint, sweet spot with timing light, no vacuum leaks other than small one at egr which aprears that it was designed that way, cleaned grounds, fluid leves up, . If I reve rpms high I can slam into gear and take off. coming to a stop stalls but restarts. doesn't seem to shudder just stalls. I can turn idle screw all that way up no difference. cleaned firewall electrical connector real good. doesn't have a lock up torque converter and a transmission guy said he didn't think that would be the problem unless bad shutter coming to stop. good ground to distributor. Vacuum is good on my gauge cant remember the reading right now but its in the green kinda thing on the gauge.
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    G'day, I had that prob years ago. Turned out to be the be the egr valve, mine wasn't leaking but a very similar story. I had to 2 foot it to keep it running at lights & stop signs, but after all that.... changed the egr and instant cure! I see this is an older post, but I'd thought I'd share my experience. Lol, better late than never eh!
