Seems to be missing when put in gear worse when put in reverse when gas is pressed goes away .has not thrown any codes

misfire is P030x DTC codes.
but only trip when much worse ,
no matter, your seat of pants are smarter than any ECU on earth.
no lie.
ever give it a tune, up ,if not why not?
misfire hot or cold block. or both?
sure under load,
the car has a 60k mile service schedule , ever consider doing that? this stops 90% of all misfires.

Misfire can be , (bad 12vdc electrical power to EFI components)

1: lost compression hot. or cold. or both.
2: bad spark, (tuneup skipped, easy peasy, do it)
3: bad fueling. (vast reasons, but air leaks, bad 02 sensor, bad air meter if opted, low fuel pressure or insane high at 60psi not 30.
never changed the fuel or air filter, yes, that tune up list calls.
just to name a few.

it can also be caused by leaking EGR main valve.
it too is a 50k service point, (clean it)

I bought an 89 dodge spirit, and it wont keep the battery charged has had multiple new batteries put into it and it also stalls every time its put into gear what could be the problem

Most probably, the AIC stepper motor is bad, one way to kno, is when the engine slows at idle when you swithc on the air conditioner, and the Idle automatioc control does not correct the RPM dropping from the increased load. An engien that does not maintain correct and stable idle cannot maintain the battery charged, but it could have multiple issues.

I have a 95 dodge voyager, yesterday it started sounded fine until you put it in gear, then it would sputter, and rev on its own and stall out, i added gas and put in oil, and it just kept sputtering,...

you could have a bad wire that can cause an injector to be shorted stall you out. new wires last installed? Plugs?or a bad throttle position sensor, clean the throttle body. these are some of the things.
start with plug wires.
if over 100 k and no new plugs/ would make sense.
Hope this helps you.
