The shift cable could be bad, if it shifts into park O.K. then most likely the cable is O.K.
Check the level of the transmission fluid.

You'll need to change the distributor, as the distributor shaft oil seal has gone bad. Without sufficient spark, you'll have no power. Don't forget a new cap/rotor.

I think you have an engine speed sensor fault. its not reading the engine speed or the motion speed. needs these two to change speed and ( gear). one is connected to the abs unit and the other is on the engine. usually if they both go its down to the gear box ecu. you can check if you have it on a ecu reader. will have fault codes or not be read at all.

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.

Replaced battery now wont idle


hold revs up for approx 5-10 seconds then slowly bring back to idle if it still stalls have to adjust air bleed screw in throttle body to adjust idle speed
ECU needs to relearn must put in gear then turn on a/c while in gear idling and then turn on head lights then put in neutral while other things are on then turn off all things and go for drive
