SOURCE: transmission ?
The TCC solonoid is bad I have changed hundred of these there is a square coector of the front side of the transmission, this is the connector for the TCC ( torque converter Clutch) it has a tab lock put your finger nale under the tab or a smal screwdriver and lift gently and pull the connector off the car will now drive when you put it in gear but NOT have 4th gear and theck engine light may come on you should get this fixed as soon as possible you have to take off the side transmission cover the TCC is in there only buy one directly from the GM dealer no one else trust me on this, and also change te transmissin filter and gasket while your there.

i have the exact same car. And after a lot of searching, found the EXACT cause for this. Its your TCC switch (torque converter clutch switch). It has somethign to do with your transmission, and kicking the car into overdrive at certain speeds for fuel economy. Anyway, mine would stall out after driving for more than 15- 20 minutes, especially at highway speeds, which when you think about it - is the speed if you had a manual/stick - you would be shifting into the highest gear. Well, this chip or whatever it is basically gets "stuck" in high gear. And when you come to a stop, its like trying to get going in 4th gear on a manual from a dead stop. NOT happening!
I checked with a few people and did some searchign online - and found out all you have to do is unplug the wire leading into your transmission (not a car guy so I'm not sure exactlyif that's what its plugged to, but on mine ,same model and year as yours, it was blue on the very front on the engine way down dead center almost if you're standing in the front of the car looking down). I believe it was a 4pin connector when you unplug it, but I'd have to go doublecheck. NOthing at all bad happens from donig this - all it does is you lose about 3-5 mpg when you drive. I still get 25-27 mpg. If your car isn't in awesome codition and you dont want the headache of some mechanic taking everything apart to get inside the transmission to replace a dumb chip that just kicks your car into overdrive, I'd go this route. Worked for me.
I have checked all over online - and everyone who had this problem and unplugged it, had no problems ever. NO side effects. One guy says he's run up 100,000 miles since then and still runs like a top! If you need more info or whatever - email me. I dont mind. I'd love to know I'm helping someone out so they dont have to deal with it as long as I did! email@example.com

SOURCE: I have a 1998 oldsmobile regency and every time i turn sharp the car acts like its not gettin gas and dies. After that it has to sit a minute before it will crank. Also it will not crank in neutral, o
may be you should make a diagnostic and you can do it in a garage or you can do it by yourself if you want to do it by yourself you need some tools and you can find some good ones here: spobd2.com

SOURCE: my truck dies in reverse.
I have the same stalling issue in reverse with a Dodge Ram 1500. I have been researching online forums and read about stalling occurring because of a clogged or bad transmission cooling radiator. I am going to remove the lines into and out and splice a connector hose and test my reverse to see if mine is failed. I have replaced my solenoid pack, both tranny filters, air intake control, throttle positioning sensor, can positioning sensor, crankshaft positioning sensor, transmission pressure sensor, canister purge sensor. Still searching for the problem .
