Default 98 runs fine in nuetral,dies in gear?

i picked up a 98 1500 5.2 auto 2wd.owner says tranny wouldnt upshift out of first,park doesnt work.truck was parked 1.5-2 years ago....hasnt driven since.
in nuetral she fires up and runs flawless,plenty torque roll on acceleration.
put the truck in drive or reverse,the engine dies...if i floor it the engine idels at about 4-500 rpm on the verge of being dead,back to neutral...its fine.
caught hell driving her on trailor,but she offloaded and ran decent,i even spun tires in reverse easily.

whats going on?
