If the engine shuts off, like you said it did when you connect the map sensor, i would take the sensor to a auto part store and have it tested, " this sounds like you have a defective map sensor.

1987 reliant le 2.5 my trouble codes are , 1.2 , 1.3, 5.5 what does this mean?

Been a long time since I have seen one of these on the road............. I used to own one.

Code 1.2 means that the battery has been disconnected recenty (or died)
Code 5.5 means it is the end of the codes.

However Code 13, or 1.3 as you state............. is a MAP sensor code. These vehicles are notorious for MAP sensor Issues.

First inspect the vacuum hose for cracks or breaks, I suggest replacing it anyway because the car will barely run without it. If the vacuum hose does not help, make sure the sensor is actually getting vacuum from the engine in-case it is clogged. If it is them remove the electrical connector from the MAP sensor with the key ON but the Engine OFF. Use a volt meter to check that one of the pins has about 12 volts, another should have 5 volts, and the last should have Ground. if these are ok then you will need a new MAP sensor.

I have a 2001 dodge 2500 v10 gas. When started it runs rough regardless of temp. Code says mixture is too rich. The problem goes away if engine rmps are held between 3 and 4 thousand for about a minute and...

I commend you on your tenacity. I guess the code is P0172. So you have metered air due the the MAP and IAT in combination and good engine coolant signal but still too rich and runs rough. It all points to a leaky fuel pressure regulator valve.
