    "If I were put in that position, I wouldn't do it, because...

    "If I were put in that position, I wouldn't do it, because every time I do that, I wouldn't feel good." Is this sentence correct?

    Please explain to me how "I do that" and 'wouldn't" go together, given "do" is in simple present tense and "wouldn't", here, is about a hypothetical condition.

    Thank you.
    P.S. Please correct any errors above.

    The sentence is not correct.

    We need do ... don't or did ... wouldn't.
