Re: transmission not shifting
A very common problem with those engines is the Idle Air Control valve going wacky. I take it your trans. is an automatic. If it is, the trans. filter is inside the case of the trans. You have to take the trans. literally apart to replace it.

The transmission has servo shift sensor and can be affected by the speed sensor . Should the speed sensor not be the problem and it the other I recommend you find a used transmission with low mileage seek an experience mechanic to install with new fluids in tranny and torque convertor
could be how long has it been since you did a tranny flush or changed your filter? i would try changin the filter, cuz when u shut off the motor the pump stops pumping and the crud sinks to the bottom, but when u start it it gets sucked back into the filter and causes it not to shift right.
I had the same problem and found that it was an electronic shift switch with frayed wires. I thought the transmission was going bad, but after replacing that switch (externally mounted on the transmission) it works fine. Much cheaper than a transmission. I probably could have saved more by finding the part aftermarket on-line.
It sounds like the kick down cable or "down shift cable" This is the cable on the transmission that shifts back down when the car slows. The transmission is most likely stuck in a higher gear and simply stalls the engine when shifted. replace this and i believe you will be back on the road. Hope this helps. Good luck.
Transmission is likely reacting to poor engine performance. Check cap, rotor & wires...Check fuel filter (if they haven't been changed in a really long time, don't even look...just change them). If you find nothing unusual, check codes (if any) I think you most likely have an ignition problem at this point but you have to do some "hands on" checking to determine what's going on... Good luck
