Question about 1988 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24
When I'm driving 50 to 60 for a while and I come in town at a stop light it will jerk and stall and I have to gas it to get going again then it's fine
Your TPS switch is bad. It is caled Throudle Pision Sencer. It is on the side of the throdle body and has two wires going to it. It is not reading where the throdle is so therefor it stalls.

The problem is the torque converter solenoid. I had it happen on my 94 Cavalier a few years back and was a cheap fix at the local car mechanic. What happens is the transmission warms up and hits a certain speed where the solenoid engages, but then it sticks and won't disengage until it cools down sufficiently. When it sticks, it causes the car to shake when slowing down and will snub out the engine if you come to a stop.

It sounds like the torque converter clutch. Just unplug it. It is the square 4 pin plug on the front of the transmission. Once it is unplugged and you get it unlocked, it will be fine. Just leave it unplugged, it won't hurt anything.

My 93 Lumina did the same thing and a simple tune up solved the problem. For whatever reason, the rear middle plug wire goes bad before the others.
