Could be the trans sensor, but you better choices are the TP (throttle position sensor), MAF (Mass Air Flow) and IAC (Idle Air Control)

However, we need to start with the basics... check for codes

once you get the codes update your post and I'll get you started on the next step

ENGINE DIES AT RANDOM.


have you replaced oxygen sensors they can cause this as it may read improper fuel in the exhaust, also try throttle posistioning sensor, also MAP sensor but to make sure you should have your car diagnosed by a shop with OBDI diagnostics, or you can purchase scanner fairly cheap your self its fairly easy, and for price of scanner you could come ot cheaper then a repair shop charges to scan it. Also there is a self diagnostic chapter in repair manuals that is called troubleshooting section also contains codes and methods of diagnostics.
