Unplug the electrical connector at the front of the transmission for the transmission lockup torque convertor clutch TCC and if it stops the stalling that you have detailed, leave the connector unplugged without harm. You may like the way it runs better because the transmission will no longer enter "lockup" which is what always gave the car that feeling of struggling when you got up to speed and it engaged. The actual fix is likely to replace the TCC solenoid inside the tranny.

Is this plug on the top driver side right by the trans lines? Right below the speedo cable

Yes, it has several wires. The connector can be square or round.

Thanks for that, it helped the whole chugging problem ive been having. Now do you have any advice on why it still wants to die when i pull in anywhere to park? It acts like its not getting enough gas. Any help would be great. Again thanks for all your help so far

So unplugging this did not stop the stalling issue? Please detail the stalling more.

It helpped the chugging but it acts like it is starving for fuel when i pull into somewhere to park. Driving and stopping at stop lights is fine, for some reason though when i goto park it wants to die like it isnt getting enough gas
