jeep keeps dieing when put in gear?

So my friend just had a motor replaced in his 2002 jeep gc. Engine starts and revs fine in park, when he puts into gear it just dies. Any help would be appreciated. Thankyou.

Re: jeep keeps dieing when put in gear?

Which engine/transmission?
Sounds almost if the torque converter clutch is activated. Is there any fault code set?

4.0 I6 engine forget the tranny (r38 sound correct?) Only way to get it moving was by turning the cam sensor clockwise a couple degrees.

It has the 42RE transmission then. With the cam sensor moved a few degrees, how does it run in idle?
