I got home and my car was acting funny by the was it is a 1999 :b5: 1.8T, and when I parked I put it in P and when I went to take it for a spin to try to figure out what was wrong before the car just stalled and dies, it will turn on but whenever I engage a gear even R it stalls and dies, the check engine light comes on and the battery light stays on as long as the car is still turned off, then when I turn it back on it runs fine, no check engine light on or battery ligh on but if I try to engage another gear, again stalls and dies.
has anyone have this happen before? if so what is it? what could be wrong?
Thanks
Mauricio :???:
