Cars idle, was running rough, overheating, lost antifreeze,stalling, motor would shut down quietly at traffic lights and I had to put it in neutral & press on the accelerater, preventing stalling?

While driving, no indication of overheating, & still has antifreeze, & oil in motor. Ty for your help?

i recently bought a 2000 ford escort zx2 with an automatic transmission i got it cheap cause the transmission was slipping.I changed the filter, did a fluid change, replaced the VSS and did alot of reading and no changes the slipping remained constant. Today I unplugged connector right below the neutral saftey switch its an orange connector with 8 pin-in slots. With it unplugged it shifts and before it would'nt move unless it started in low, then got up to speed then drive and finally over drive, but now it shifts great why? My car has 155000 miles.
