it sounds like more of a valve body problem.....it's possible that the throttle valve is sticking towards the closed position....try this..when it starts acting up,take off at about 1/2 throttle...if shifts are still stacked,my money would be on that being the problem......or you can try this..TURN CAR OFF...and mash the pedal to the floor a few times...start car and drive it to see if it freed up the valve and it shifts normal,even if it's for a few shift cycles....the engine wanting to stall when coming to a stop is a characteristic of a bad[sticking open] lock up solenoid.Its not the converter...they are stupid,and have to be told when to be applied,and when not to...thats where the solenoid comes into play.
