88 Buick LeSabre "Stalling out"

Hello All:
My Neighbor is having a problem with his car Stalling on him

1988 Buick Le Sabre 6cyl

It starts with no problems He had a recent tune up Plugs, wires,Pcv, new Sensors New injectors

Car Idles Fine no misses the problem is when he puts it in gear it Sputters and dies "like a lack of Fuel" within about 20' of being in gear foward or reverse.

Their are no Vacume leaks either

No Trouble codes are flashing either

Like I said when in netural it idles fine and revs up fine, just when it goes into gear it sputters and dies.

could this be a tranny module problem

Get a fuel pressure test done.May be lack of fuel from low fuel pressure or a filthy gas filter.Timing check ok?

Check for a Mass air flow sensor problem. Have it tested by a parts store.
