Does it have a cadalitic converter on the exhaust? if it does could be pluged up and restricting exhaust flow. dosent sound like anything is wrong with transmission. if its got a fuel filter chg. that could be pluged. also chk. vacume advance on distributor might have seazed up and will not advance spark. timming chain maybe? the car is almost 30 years old could be any one of thies i mentoned or all of them.
