It took forever to figure out what was causing the problem, they kept fixing little things and I was spending $100 every week in the rule out game. Turns out it was the intake manifold gasket and the idle control valve and it started to send the transmission off the deep end. Repairs more than the car was worth. I sold it to a friend who restores cars, now he has a project for the winter.
Thanks for your answer though, I was pulling my hair out!
