Default Stalls when put in drive good fuel pressure.

When I put my car in drive it will stall out when I give it gas. Check the fuel rail psi was good good even put a new air filter seemed to help but not the issue

you see what the pressure does when you take the vacuum line loose on the regulator?

this shows you what the pressure does when the vacuum goes down like when you put the gas on.

also could be a vacuum problem, is there any codes?

Could be a number of things. Do you have a scan tool? Can you check the fuel trims? How does it idle, any changes recently? I would be suspicious of the TPS without knowing anything else. Pull a couple of plugs to help determine lean or rich if you don't have a scan tool available.

I have a scan tool available just haven't been able to get to it yet it idles really good and smooth. It does smell a little rich but not to bad
