Is it idling at a proper RPM? Otherwise you might have a problem with the torque converter clutch.

Yes, or maybe a vacuum leak, is the SEL on?

The rpms seems fine. The torque converter was replaced(such a task) and idle air control sensor is new. We replaced a hose on the vacuum line and now, it putters alot but doesnt stall. Soon as it warms up, runs fine.
