lose power to transmission

While driving my 1996 3/4 extended cab, I'll lose power to my transmission and the speedometer goes nuts. And the transmission then shifts in to neutral and then slams back into gear. The the ABS light comes on. The transmission will keep doing this . I've had 2 transmission mechanics work on it and they can't fix the problem. The truck won't do it for them. The computer will not store a problem code either.

Deposit Buildup on Throttle Body May Cause Low Engine Idle

The engine idle may be lower than normal due to deposits built up on the throttle body, which can restrict air flow at idle. To low of an engine idle can result in a stalling condition. Performing a throttle body service will generally correct this concern.
