Default High Mileage 98 Outback transmission issue

So this evening when driving home from work, my 98 outback with an Automatic transmission started acting up. I was about halfway home going about 45 mph when the rpms started to rev up and back down. Going between 2000 and 2700 without any change in gas pedal position. It did this for a few blocks until I arrived at a stoplight. When I started to slow down the rpms dropped out and the car died. No check engine light....... Just seeing if anyone has any ideas for me to check tommorow. Pouring rain so not able to do much tonight. Thanks in advance.

A bit vague, but do a visual inspection under the hood for cracked or missing plumbing somewhere. My last car had the same issue and it was a 3" piece of 3/8" rubber hose that was cracked and broken. Cost was less than 1 dollar.

Tried checking for missing/broken plumbing but found none. However this morning when I tried to drive it, the AT oil temp light flashes everytime I start the car. Flashes 16 times then goes out. The car can barely be driven a block before I have to shut it down and start it up again
