The check engine light turned on in my 1999 Huyndai Elentra since then when I put my car into drive (it is an automatic) the car turns off, the same for any other gears. When you hold down the gas the car will stay on but right when you release it the car will die. I have no clue what is going with the car any suggestions on what is wrong with it we be greatly appreciated.

The Check Engine Light is on because the car's computer has identified a specific error with one of your vehicle's component - this is very likely the error that is causing the engine to die when you shift into gear. The error code is stored in the computer. It can be retrieved with an OBD-II scanner. Take the car to someone who has one. Or buy one at Wal-Mart, a basic one is only about $100, and worth every penny. Most of the time, retrieving the error code will cut down on the amount of blind guesswork that you need to do in order to fix the car. Good luck.
