Check the seals around the lower pan and exhaust tower - they may be leaking and letting in exhaust fumes.

Remove the cover and see if the engine behavior is any different. If the idle speed picks up and the motor does not stall when first put into gear, that validates that you have exhaust intrusion under the hood.
