if it is a three speed automatic it is probably the TCC solenoid sticking. On the front of the trans (pointing towards radiatoer) there will be a square plug that you can unplug. if that fixes the problem then it is TCC sol. DO NOT DRIVE ON LONG TRIPS UNPLUGED THIS IS TEST ONLY. WILL CAUSE TRANS OVERHEATING AND DAMAGE IF DRIVEN EXTENDED PERIODS . but if it does correct the problem you know what is wrong.

It will NOT cause transmission damage in early 90s or older cars, only when you get into 96-97 and older cars with overdrive transmissions.

So, just look in the front of your transmission, its a 4 wire plug, unhook it and you should be on your way.

I would suspect a bad alternator and battery, have them both checked at the parts store. A car with a fully charged battery and a bad alternator will run until the battery is drained and then quit.
