It probley has a bad coil. it has 3 coils so you need to find which one is bad. connect a test light to neg bat term. with engine idling poke test light through the plug boots at the coil one at a time. if it does not drop any rpms on one of the coil towers. that coil is the suspect. good luck.

sounds like your automatic transmission is stuffed, take it to a mechanic for a second opinion but it seems to me like you'll need to either rebuild or replace the transmission

1988 chev trans takes high rpm to shift from 1st to 2nd and some times it wont down shift when you slow down and hit the gas again


Check the adjustment of the transmission T.V. cable. Sometimes they also stick. Try driving it at 30. Shift to Neutral, stab the gas pedal to the floor quickly a couple of times. Then shift back to drive. Then see if it shift normal.

Fuel pump is bad or plugged fuel filter it seems. Crack the line from the filter leading towards the engine first. If gas starts squirting out fast, you have good pressue. If not the filter is plugged or a bad pump. How old is the fuel filter by chance? If original its plugged up by now
