Assuming the engine runs, this sounds like a transmission problem. Check your transmission fluid to make sure it is at the proper level and doesn't have a burned smell. If all is well, you will probably need to have an experienced transmission mechanic look at it for you. Good luck!

My jeep jeep cherokee sport vehicle will not start some time until i wiggle the gear in park or netural


Vehicle will not start (I assume you mean won't "crank" / "turn-over") until wiggle gear in park or neutral - Replace the Neutral Safety Switch. First check terminal connection (plug)) if okay replace Neutral Safety Switch. The Neutral Safety Switch will not cause the vehicle to shut off while driving.
To diagnose stalling - next time it stalls and doesn't start check for spark and fuel. With no check engine light or codes mentioned in your post also indicates it is a spark or fuel problem (ignition problem/not emission problem (the sensors)). Keep smiling.

My car keeps shuting off when i either touch the brakes and/or put it into drive or reverse. I am thinking it is the neutral safety switch and im not sure how to install it


The safety neutral switch is to prevent you starting the engine while in drive or reverse. It will not shut off engine, just prevent the starter from working.
Pressing the brake will affect the vacuum pressure of the intake momentarily due to the brake booster use of vacuum "pressure"
Shifting to drive will lower the engine idle speed, lowering the intake negative pressure. (Vacuum)
I would think you have a problem with the mass air flow sensor which controls the fuel mixture depending on the volume of air flow and sensing the vacuum level of the intake. Possibly just a minor vacuum leak at the mass air flow sensor. Maybe more serious problem. Check the small hoses at the MAF for rot or splitting. Im sorry I cant help more than that.

Transmission jumping and over drive light flashing ford contour 1996


If the fluid is full, it's most likely time to replace the transmission. How many miles are on the car? If you keep driving it like that, you will find yourself on the side of the road soon.

This could be as simple as a bad transmission temperature sensor or a Neutral Safety Switch. Have the Neutral Safety Switch checked out first because the Transmission Temp. Sensor is fairly expensive.

Code p0722 speed sensor.... what is the real prob? thank you for your time


Not having more specific info as to the behavior of your vehicle it's hard to say. what the problem might be. Computer codes are only a place to startt.
The P0722 is for Output Speed Sensor 2 Circuit No Signal. This means that the transmission control module is not receiving a signal from the Output Speed Sensor.
I am assuming (based on this information) that your vehicle is front wheel drive and has an automatic transmission. If you have a different powertrain (i.e. quattro all wheel drive or a manual transmission), write back and let me know.
This P0722 is a common fault on front wheel drive automatic transmissions (called a CVT). The bad thing is that the output speed sensors are part of the transmission control module and the only way to repair that is to replace the transmission control module. The module is located inside the transmission. Expect to pay $1000 to $1500 for the module and another $700 to $900 for labor.
There is a possibility it could be the Neutral safety switch. They an get dirty and cause problems so spend a cople of dolars checking this before laying out the bigger bucks.
Testing Neutral Safety Switch

Required Tools:
Test Light/Voltage-meter
Wiring schematic
Neutral safety switch location (component location)

Test Procedure
Locate the neutral safety switch
Disconnect the wiring connector at the switch
Using a test light or volt-meter test for power at the wiring harness with the key in the "engine crank" or the gear shifter in the "reverse" position. (do not start the engine)
If power exists reconnect the neutral safety switch and probe outgoing wires at the connector.
If no outgoing power is present the switch has failed and needs to be replaced.
Tip : If the engine will not crank over with the car in "park" push down the brake pedal and try cranking the engine over with the car in "neutral". What you are doing is bypassing the "park" position in the switch and now are using the little used neutral circuit. If in neutral the engine starts the switch is probably bad.
Tip: Sometimes a neutral safety switch can become misadjusted. This switch adjustment can change due to normal wear of mechanism that controls switch slider.
Other complications can occur if there is a loose connection somewhere in the system. While this condition is not a shorted circuit problem, it is a condition that simply breaks the flow of electricity intermittently. To troubleshoot this problem consult a car repair manual to locate the wiring schematic for your car. Repair the broken or shorted connection as needed and recheck system. Electrical problems are less complicated when the proper information is available.
Hope this helps you
