DIES WHEN I STOP AND IDLES FUNNY WHEN IN PARK, WHAT WOULD CAUSE THIS?

1985 Mercury Capri • 40,000 miles

Also when the vehicle is in park the idle will rise and drop till it drops so far that it does

It sounds like you have a bad idle air control valve (if fuel injected) or a vacuum leak if your car has a carb and not fuel injection.
