Assuming all the normal tune-up parts and the engine it self are OK, the most likely cause is the distributor. These cars are famous for the distributors developing excessive play causing the electronic ignition to fault out. This shows after about 90,000 miles or so. Sooner if oil changes are not done. To check for this, remove the cap and check the rotor shaft for side to side play. Next most likely is the throttle body getting very dirty. This causes a bad hesitation off idle, then as it gets worse (more dirty), stalling at idle.

1994 eagle talon stalls when trying to accelerate in drive but dont when in reverse?

You've probably got a bad motor mount. In drive the engine and trans twist in an opposite direction from when in reverse. In drive, you get an unwanted electrical connection (like Battery+ to Battery-) somewhere near the starter or the alternator or a sensor or ignition coil causing the stall. Replace any bad motor mounts and you should be OK.
