Have the torque convertor checked, usually its the torque converter clutch solenoid, you may also want to check the idle air control valve first. But I suspect the other

Thanks for the information. How do you check the torque converter and do you have to drop the transmission to fix it. Also do you know about how much it costs to fix this problem. And is there some kind of way I can put my car in gear without it cutting off. Until I am able to pay for this plus I can't drive it to the shop right now.

Yes, you have to drop the transmission, but the solenoid can be disconnected, and you will have poor fuel economy. But you should be able to drive it. Let me see if I can get a diagram to the convertor clutch solenoid

Im sorry skully this vehicle does not have a disconnect for the solenoid. So the best thing for us to do at this point is to gain access to a scan tool, autozone will rent them, for a deposit and you get your money back when you return it. Even a cheap one will give us a code, so we can be definite on this problem. Becuase at this point we have no room for possibilities. Keep me posted please
