van sputters and stalls when shifted into "drive".

I have a 1989 Toyota Van, automatic transmission. When shifted into Park, Reverse, and Neutral, everything is fine and the engine runs smoothly. Once it is shifted into "Drive" however, the engine sputters and stalls.
I've played around with the idle adjustment, but that doesnt seem to work. Infact, its probably gotten worse so I've returned the idle back to its original setting. Its now stalling worse than ever. I'm basically stranded.
Can anyone give me any help or advice?

Changing the idle is useless and futile and has nothing to do with the problem.

Could be anything---you don't give us much to go on. Read "See here before posting" at the top of the forum's page and post back the required information.
