My 1996 gt dies after about a min of idling. I will start it and when i go to put it in gear it dies. It seems to go back to the aux position, meaning the check engine and battery light come on and can put it in any gear. Any ideas?

I didn't notice anything happening up till then. The purge valve kept throwing me error codes so I replaced that about two weeks ago. I doesn't die everytime I put it into gear though, only some times.

When a car stalls out usually all the dash lights come back on, that is totally normal. Take off your IAC and make sure it's not gummed up. You can clean it out with some throttle body/ carb cleaner.
