Hello my name is ***** ***** I'll be happy to help you today, does the vehicle stalls when you shift from park to reverse or drive at normal operating temperature?

No does not stall when putting in gear. Will rungood starting out and after a little driving will start jerking or when you try to give more gas will stall and when you get around 35-55 and wants to shift it starts.

The problem that you're having is the torque converter clutch solenoid, is the solenoid that applies the clutch in the torque converter and what is doing is leaving the clutch in the converter applied all the time causing the engine to stall after driving the vehicle for a little time , is like driving a vehicle with manual transmission and if you are coming to a stop if you don't press the clutch pedal the vehicle will stall
