I had this very same problem. I replaced the battery with a Ford 875 cranking amp battery and the fuel filter. The air ride really beats on those batteries, especially if the compressor is worn out.

Problem is the automatic transmission. You have either a bad throttle position sensor, a bad speed sensor, a problem with TCM (transmission control module, or a problem with transmission solenoid.
The first action is doing a code scanning. A partial code scanning can be done for free at Autozone. Autozone can only do a scan on the main computer, which will may return a code P0700 (see code p0700 after an OBDII scan.) P0700 means that an additional scan must be done on the transmission dedicated module. If there is a code P0700 (do free test first), a full scan canl be done at the dealer or at an authorized using a different scan tool. A mechanic scanning the TCM will help more than saying "I do not know". Standard charge is $80.
If there are no codes the parts that can be responsible must be tested.
Before doing anything else, check transmission fluid. If it is dark brown or if level is low, replace it.
The most common fault causing the problem is a defective TPS ( throttle position sensor). Test must be done using a multimeter.
The TPS can be tested by reading volts at its terminals while someone else is pushing down the accelerator pedal. If voltage has gaps (in your case this is likely the result), or if voltage does not change smoothly, then the TPS must be replaced.
Other part that can be responsible is the speed sensor, mounted on the transmission. This part is more difficult to test, and gets usually replaced.
The transmission is operated by an array of solenoids called solenoid pack. The solenoids are located inside transmission, in the valve body. The solenoids are tested using an Ohm meter.
Wiring to solenoid pack must also be checked reading volts while problem happens (mechanic will put car on lifter).
If there is nothing else, then the TCM itself (a computer) may be itself the culprit. Before replacing the module, it must be tested. First part to check is its grounding and the connector pins.
As said, the culprit is likely the TPS. That is the first part to test. Do also a code scanning to see if there are codes stored.

First thing to check is turn
your key on and look for a amber light that say check engine. Make sure that
light come on and go out after about 3 to 15 sec with the key in on position. If
you don't have the light on the most likely your car computer do not get power
recheck the fuses and fusible link.
If you have the light on then
listen to the fuel pump running when you turn the car on, it should run for
about 3 sec. and turn off. If you don't hear the sound of the fuel pump then it
would be your fuel pump or relay. obd2 scanner tool
