you have a sensor some were not likeing the heat. they can go this way sometimes. you need to run diagnostics as the engine is warming up and have it set to view the engine as it warms up to find the problem. it could be a cam sensor as they prone to do this when they are hot then work fine when they are cool.
I change motor&trans together when finished the trans. has no revers or netural
When you changed the motor and transmission, did you use the gearshift control assembly that came with the motor and transmission that you installed?
Or did you do an exact match-up of motor for motor / transmission for transmission and re-use the original gearshift control assembly?
Predicated that the transmission is used, like from a junk yard and had been sitting, it may be defective; or it's just a matter of readjusting the cables from the shifter control assembly to the crossover cables to the gear shift selector at the transmission.

My 1993 dodge shadow died and wouldn't start back
Check the codes again- there are only 2-digit codes. Code 13 is saying "MAP sensor is not detecting any change during self-test". It could be a bad MAP sensor (Manifold Absolute Pressure-the vacuum sensor for the engine), but sometimes it can be a wire harness problem. If a new or known-good Map sensor doesn't fix it, you will need a mechanic to check the MAP sensor circuit.
Usually when an engine dies and won't restart, it is a gas or spark problem. Listen for the fuel pump to turn on with key in on, not start-it should turn on for about 2 seconds to put pressure in the fuel line and up to the engine. If the pump is working, next check for spark at a spark plug wire, with the engine being cranked over. If you have a blue, snapping spark, the ignition is probably good. If no spark, it could be a bad ignition coil, a bad Ignition Control Module, or possibly a bad Crankshaft Position Sensor.
