I would check into some fuel flow/pressure issues...

Ok, ill look into that ill grab a pressure gage for the fuel line see what i get. I have a parts car so geting the pieces i may need wount be to much of a problem. Thanx.

it is either a fuel problem or a torque converter problem.... have you checked the trans cooler in the radiator sometimes they will break off the nipple on the radiator and loose fluid... low fluid = low trans pressure ...low pressure = no movement.
