It sound as if you have a problem in your ignition switch the spring is broken and it cheaper and easier to go to a good salvage yard and find one the same color as your and then take it to a locksmith and have it rekey for your key.

My 84 bmw 733i will start and run but engine dies as soon as i let go of the key

I had this exact symptom on my 1984 533i. I spent months diagnosing everything but the computer. It was the computer that failed. Actually only part of the circuitry failed and is probably repairable. When the car is cranking it would run. I set up a wire harness that allowed me to shut off the starter motor while I was holding the key in the starter motor position. The car ran just fine. The 533, 633 and 733 all use the computer ending with 008. DO NOT slap in any other computer unless you actually know what you are doing. I tried. And you risk damaging good components, like the donor computer and the injectors.

All comes on when key is turned on, starter will not engage when key turned to position. new starter, new battery, starter attempts to start car when jumped at starter relay 87 w/key on. car had started,...

Does the car have a factory security system? it may have a starter kill on it.
also check for voltage at the starter solenoid while someone holds the key to start position, you could have a faulty ignition switch.
the engine light stays on when the key is on until engine starts.

Car will be running great and all of a suddon it will die but it will start rite back up

This can be caused by many things. The most common is an intermittent connection to the Crankshaft Position Sensor or the sensor itself. Find the wiring harness to the sensor and wiggle andpull on the harness with the engine running to see if you can make it die. If it dies, you probably need to fix the wires inthe harness. If you can't make it die, let it run for a while and see if it dies on its own. If it will die while just sitting there idling, replace the sensor.

Engine dies right after starting

The wire from your solenoid valve goes directly to your ignition switch there is no fuse in line. The ignition switch contacts or the plug just behind the switch probably has a bad contact. The switch is easily replaceable, just one screw that holds it in place. They did have a tendency to wear out. Don't forget to check the plug behind the switch, and make sure that there is no immoblizer fitted that can give you the problem.

My car wont stay running

Does the engine die as soon as you release the key, or does it run for a couple of seconds after you release the key and then die? If it dies as soon as you release the key, try holding the key for a few seconds and see if it will stay running as long as you are holding the key (the starter will make a grinding sound while holding the key but won't hurt anything). If it stays running while you hold the key then dies when you release it, that indicates that the ignition switch is bad.
