My ford telstar tx5 V6 idles correctly and revs clean when not in gear. When driving there are deadspots in the throttle

there is an idea that when it runs good in reverse but not in forward gears , there is a problem in bad engine mounts that is allowing the wiring to make a bad circuit for the electronics
could be a loose /bad connection for the cam/ crank sensors, injector operation or ignition control module
in forward gear , the engine reacts to the torque application and that would pull on the harness
when in reverse the reaction is opposite and not affect the wires

Freelander starts,revs well but doesnt move off sharply,what may be the cause?

Check transmission fill and differential fills for proper levels. Also, if temperature is cold, allow vehicle to warm up with transmission in forward gear for about ten seconds before moving to allow fluids to move freely along channels in transmission. In extremely cold climates, some change may be needed in viscosity of fluids. See your dealer for information on this. You didn't indicate how cold it is where you are driving, but low fluid levels, lack of adequate lubrication or severe cold can be a cause of this problem.

94 tauras AT once warmed up trans will drop out gear at a stop

This is a common problem. You have a cracked forward clutch piston. Ford made this part out of aluminum. The replacements are steel. But you have to disassemble the transmission to install it. ( I know you said Rev too, In the AXODE trans, the forward clutch is on in 1st and reverse)
