The motor spools up when idling but as soon as i put it into gear the motor stalls. I think it is a coil problem. I have changed the plugs and sent fuel additives throught hte engine but it still will not start. NEED HELP

Check compression before spending money on parts. Check to see if there is spark at each cylinder.
