Started out with me having my foot on the break and the gear in drive and it started kind of shaking. Then when I was driving home I stopped at a stop sign and the car just completely died. Any idea what...

if your car starts to run rough or dies when you apply the brakes this is an indicator that you have a vacum leak. air assisted brakes use alot vacum so when they are applied with one of the hoses off it causes problems. had anything checked under your hood recently? oil? tranny fluid? air filter? it doesnt take much to dislodge an old and worn or poorly installed vacum hose.

My 91 Talon keeps popping out of 1st gear when taking off. What can I do about this?

Check for worn engine mounts. Have some one stand to the SIDE of the vehicle, engage the parking brake and put transmission in 1st gear try to take off as normal. If the engine moves excessively or tilts, you have a worn mount. When the engine does this it pulls on the linkage and pulls it out of gear.
