Alright, do you have a scan tool to check the codes in the ECM?

no

Alright, the first step will be to check the codes, if you can stop by a local auto parts store and have it scanned, and write the codes down, I can give you an idea of what it will be. Likely solenoids in the valve body. or possibly speed sensor codes.
