yes he is correct also check for any vacum leaks into the intake this will cause the o2 sensors to tell the obc (computer) to compensate for the extra air entering the system and cause the engine to lean the fuel out that will cause a obd2 code saying the o2 sensor needs to be replaced when it is only a vacum leak

When you start your car the computer needs time to calibrate. That means set a base level for all components. I would recommend that whenever you start your car be sure that the tachometer has dropped below 1 before proceeding. Also it is a good idea to not have any other accessories running while warming up (e.g. radio, blower).
Your computer starts to gather O2 readings after you have driven over 10 mph for 30 seconds. Your O2 sensor is starting to give out and giving your computer wrong voltages, this means that when you press the gas your computer cannot calculate the correct air/fuel ratio. The symptoms you are having are no doubt the cause of the bad O2 sensor, I would recommend you buy one on Ebay ~$45.

remove the front 02sensor and drive the car like that, remove means complety take it apart from exaust, if problem goes away or gets so much better then your catalitic converter at the exaust is restricted and need a new one

I have the same car. So far no problems with the Transmision. I had the Trans oil change out every 60 K
Sure sounds like you need to get the Transmision checked. Is the fault light on. I have invested ina fault code reader sure is worth it.
Good luck. Vilmos
