the transmission on ''D/drive'' goes on neutral after stopping, only with high rpm goes abruptly into drive again.
Work's ok when you select the 3rd gear.
I am looking to buy the car, but it has this problem.
What could cause this?
Thanks.

Sounds like the transmission is slipping into limp mode. Might be a loose wire in the harness on outside or inside that is disconnecting resulting" solenoid defaulting into 3rd gear.

Pull codes to see if there is any confirmation.

Sounds like a linkage problem to me. An '89 does not have solenoids for shifts, rather a cable for shift points with vacuum modulator for shift feel. If there's no slop in the linkage there is internal trouble which basically means a rebuild.

Ok.
I will add that: when it goes out of gear and comes on with revving the engine, it goes into gear abruptly.
