clutchs in tranny are going bad, bye a new or remanufactured tranny to put in it, it is better than haveing it rebuilt It could also be the spring on the throttle valve being broken or installed in corectly. It is mounted on the side of trans. follow the cable from throttle body to transmission the spring should pull on the lever away from throttle body. ot he cable is not ajusted properly. look for ajustments for the tv "throttle valve"cable.
