I don't know if it's going to be an engine problem or a transmission problem. Because I had a person who had a similar issue but there engine needed attention. But to quicken this up, rule out the engine. Check oil pressure, fuel pressure (especially), engine vacuum. Better yet if you can get it on a chassis dyno, do that. Then you can work your way to the transmission. If the engine doesn't have enough power when the transmission shifts then it's going to want to stall out. Yea just try and rule the engine out first.
