Change the auto transmission fluid and filter. Pay attention to the smell of the fluid. If it smells burnt, there is likely burned or worn clutches. You can compare the smell of the old fluid with the new fluid if you're a newbie. it also doesn't hurt to save a sample to share with an expert if you know one. Also pay close attention in the bottom of the pan for metal filings, fragments etc. A fine layer of black silt is usually normal. If the trans is burned out, there will be evidence in the pan. NEVER rev the engine to get an auto to go into gear, and avoid letting the transmission slip at all costs. Overhaul is a major job and very expensive. I don't know why they'd change wheel bearing on a slipping auto. Or why they couldn't diagnose it for you. Hope this helps.

Could be vapor lock in the fuel system. Next time it does this, stop and try removing the fuel filler cap... Hope this helps...;-)

I would try to replace your spark plugs, and spark plug wires, My 88 Vic did the same thing...now it runs like a champ....you could also try fuel injector cleaner.

the torque converter is locked up, you need to have the system tested there should be a trouble code for a TCC solenoid, but do the test, most times the torque converter will need to be replaced, have worked for ford dealer 25 years and seen this many times.
