Make sure your vacuum hose is hooked up from your top of the transmission pan.

Might need a transmission fluid and filter change. Pretty sure no codes will come up for tranny f- ing up. Or could be as simple as a dirty feul filter only allowing a little bit of fuel through

Or fuel pump had a similar problem kept getting worse kept throwing new sensors on it finally replaced the pump for a cpl bucks and it was ok
