Sometimes the car only has second gear, sometimes it has all gear
There are times when I start the car, there is a light around the D on the gear indicator that stays there no matter what gear I have it in. There will at the same time always be a light around the gear I have shifted into. When this happens, I only have second gear. If when I start the car the light is not around D and only around the actual gear I have it in, I have all gears and they change fine. This is driving me nuts.

It sounds to me like your gongilator valve might be stuck wide open. Try removing the air filter and way down in the filter housing is whats known as a kibibulator pin and what you need to do is pop it with a ballpean hammer and irt should cause the muffler bearing to start leaking quite a bit of blinker fluid if you do it right. It'll be a green substance that really stinks. Once it stops leaking you want to get about a gallon of diesel fuel and pour it into your gastank and fire the car up. Shift the gears through the gears and then powerbrake a nice burnout in your driveway. It should take care of your problem.

You have a ground problem. Since it starts battery to engine ground is good. You need to check or add ground wires from the battery to the body, from the engine to body, and I put an extra ground wire from the transmission to the engine.
with the car on safety stands and running in gear check the speed sensor with a volt meter . The oil light should light up wen the ignition is on and go out a second or two after starting. Check the sender unit and wiring .
Have a code check done and see if speed sensor or controller is working properly. if bought from a dealer, get it back there asap...they can't sell it in that condition!!...No test drive before you ploped down your money?
That's called flairing and is not a good thing (indicates pressure loss inside unit) If you haven't changed the fluid in a long time sometimes a fluid and filter change with an additive such as lucas conditioner may help. Generally though, there is no real chemical fix that replaces worn parts.Depending upon where and how worn your unit is, sometimes doing this will prolong use for many months. Or, it will have no effect at all. Sealing will not happen overnight it took a long time to get this way.If you need an immediate fix, have it rebuilt.
Timing gear, or timing belt, sometimes you find a plastic timing gear with broken teeth off of it, if you can believe that, sounds like a timing issue, sometimes you can take and move all the spark plugs wires on the distributor in a clockwise rotation, just move them around, keeping them in the same firing order, just advancing the spark without loosening the distributor, and see some improvement
