It sounds like a vacuum leak. Take a spray bottle and place water in it and while the engine is running spray the water gentle around the hoses and manifold intake and see if the engine speed drops. If it does inspect that area for further repairs.

Have a 1997 olds bravada with 4.3 eng. trans. works fine when cold but goes out of gear as eng. temp. goes to norm. will only go back into gear when eng. is cold. can i get any thoughts on this?

If the trans is not wore out or a crack in the internal housing of the trans,change the fluid and filter.Use recomended atf fluid,and add a additive called lube gaurd.You can find it at NAPA auto parts.This is a real good additive for the valve body,witch I beleive ,and you hope,that I fixes your problem.The problem would be the valve body is sticking,and heat makes it worse,if this does not work,a trans overhaul is to be expected.
