When put it in drive it quickly shut off but the motor run ok


If the truck runs ok in park or nuetral but when you put it in drive it stalls you will need to take transmission to be rebuilt the lock up torque convertor is stuck to much to explain to have you pull it yourself plus it would be best if you had a car hoist transmission jack

97 chrysler town & country dies while driving will only start when in park, runs fine but dies without warning and will restart in park???


Well first it should only restart in park or nuetral, any check engine light on? May be fuel pump if not. Listen for pump running in fuel tank. Should run at key on for a few seconds. If check engine light on, it should be scanned for codes, possible crank sensor

Mustang 89 4 cyl 2.3 l engine starts on parking dies out on drive


if the nuetral safety was a problem the car would not start at all, sounds like you have a defective engine wiring harness, this is the most common cause of this i have seen while working for Ford.

97 neon pops into nuetral when I hit 25 mph....


Sounds to me like you are having a transmission problem.  Basically your transmission has gone into "limp" mode which is why you can drive your car up to 25mph but no further.  Basically your transmission has limited it self to reverse, neutral, and 1st gear.  Take your car to a transmission shop and have it diagnosed.  Often a simple flush and fill will fix the problem, but you might need a new transmission.
