This is probably just normal for a somewhat old tired engine. Is this 
an automatic? Or when you say that the light goes out when you put it 
in gear do you mean when you are driving.

Check under the back seat to make sure that there is a blue wire 
connected to the voltage regulator. Pull that wire off and see if 
your generator light comes on when the key is ON and you short the 
blue wire to ground (it should.) If not, learn how to remove the fuel 
gauge cluster and check that bulb.
