I will check the vaccum again while i'm having the problem. I did install a new combination intake manifold pressure/temp sensor into the intake a few weeks back, but saw no difference

unplugged the trans computer, put the car in gear and with light/medium acceleration, still had the problem. - RPM rose smoothly to 2000rpm and then fell back to 500rpm kicking and sputtering as I continued to accelerate.
I pulled the timing belt cover and everything looked good, (installed 40,000 highway miles ago). good belt, tight, timing marks aligned, no loose, bent or chipped pulleys. cam sensor (which was replaced) looked tight and positioned correctly.

Same problem with the trans in neut or park. A little harder to notice without the load on it, but I can make it happen
