I've had a new tranny put in and this is when my stalling has started before then the car ran like a top. When i first picked up the car it sometimes didn't want to shift into second then i took it back then he adjusted the kickdown cable and about a week afterwards this is when i started having trouble from the engine stalling when cold it will always start right up but i have to keep it running by flooring the gas. It will not even stay running if i crack the throttle body so i know it isn't the IAC plus this is new. But is it possible for the tranny to be stalling the engine out. I will be bringing it in for a diagnose on monday but this idea just occurred to me.

Hmmm, yes, the tranny could very well stall the engine. Wrong torque converter perhaps?
Just lay off the car til they fix it (again). No need to damage the engine.
