Hmm, alright. Yeah it will bog down to about 500 when it's not dying, then make its way up to 625 or so (where it should idle)

When it starts to die like this, it is damn near impossible to start back up unless I push the gas down and hold it. If I keep it in 1st gear and am going like 20, it will not die cause of the momentum. But if it's in 2nd - 4th it is done for. It has died at 35 in god knows what gear.

What's weird is after I drive for a bit it will be fine for the day, it varies on how long that drive will be though. Once on a 5 minute drive, it died 17 total times.

I've had the battery and alternator checked, they both were almost near perfect.
