I have A 1988 plymouth 2.2L reliant automatic. Whenever I put it into gear (Drive or reverse) it jumps or lunges forward (when I have my foot on the break). Anything you can think of or offer would help. My email is "email@example.com". Thanks.

If it is dropping out of gear and back in at stops, this could just be low fluid. If the fluid is good, look at cleaning the inside of the throttle body, to include the back of the throttle valve. Build up clings here and air restriction can cause the IAC motor to do funny things.
The gear are failing,you have a internal failure,dealing with the clutch pack,remeber not to drive too far away from home,you will just get towed.shop around for a transmission you are going to need one
If the car gets up to operating temperature and then lunges forward and cuts out and then lunges forward again, you should suspect a coil pack failure (coil module defective and not getting spark to one cylinder), a loose plug wire or bad plug wire or fouled spark plug.
Can only give you the british name which wont mean a thing in america .Automatic gear change cable .What i often do to keep old motors running like this till i can get the right parts ,is to use some thin wire and refit the connection then wire it together ,that will work for a while till the wire rusts through ,depending what bit has broke the gearbox or the cable end but if its the cable end then i should imagine its a new cable complete
