Kind of sounds like you have a bad motor mount. That's the most likely culprit. Torque from the transmission puts the engine under a lot of twisting pressure if one motor mount is broken or is worn out.This is what keeps the engine secured to the front of the car. The transmission should make the wheels go around, not the motor(LOL).Have someone stand next to the car when you crank it up and put it into gear(with your foot on the brake,of course) and see which side of the engine rises up. That's how you know for sure. Then have it fixed. If the other one goes bad too,I've seen someone crank up a car with two bad motor mounts, it's not a pretty sight.

My 2002 ford focus only goes into gear when car is off. Put it into gear and turn car on and it jumps out of gear. Then you can't get it back into gear again unless you turn car off. Car will

That usually is caused by worn out gears. Normally it will do that on only one gear. So try second gear to see if that's the problem. If 2nd works OK then first gear is worn out.
Hope this helps.

It could be the vacuum modulator on your auto transmission, sometimes when vacuum hoses fail,split or whatever, they can suck up impurities causing other downstream items to fail. Also check mechanical linkage form shifter in cabin to transmission gear selector arm. If jumps were happening these might have worked loose. Best of luck!
