I have a base v6 3.8 2000 Ford Mustang. It dies when put into drive and also when you come to a stop runs great under power and in neutral. Did diagnostic and changed throttle position sensor ordered fuel rail sensor. The tps did nothing, still same problem. Someone said could be tic solenoid, or lock up sensor but that's a bigger job than i can't do at my house - no lift. Any ideas were to go? When I change one thing just get another trouble code .
I would also recommend your idle air control valve, this is a very common fault which is inexpensive and easy to replace for further diagnostics

Hi Phillip, On your 2000 Mustang: When it comes to a diagnosis, a complete diagnosis is more than just reading codes. Code reading is only the first step. TCC or Lock Up Sensor may be the issue. A transmission shop will be able to help with the diagnosis to confirm this and the needed repair. Good Luck!
