Wow, people are mis-leading with trans problems. It's not the trans, the trans won't stall the engine unless it's going to opposite way of the engine. ie, throwing it in reverse while the car is moving forward.
Anyway, sounds like a carb problem. What happens if you let the engine warm up for about 5 minutes? What happens if you give in some gas at the same time as you toss it into gear?
