Default 01 Ram idle and shift problems

My 01 1500 360 auto is having fits. It has sat allot for the last year with gas prices so high. I bought a car to drive daily. I drove it over the weekend with the threat of snow on the way. The thing is acting crazy.The check engine light is on, It wants to hunt for idle, at speed if feels like it is surging or missing, and the converter lockup (I think, a 300RPM tach jump) keeps shifting in and out. This is the first electronic controlled gasser I've had. The local dealer is no help all they will suggest is to bring it in and let them hook it to the scope for (1-2 hrs labor) diagnostic time witch is very pricey. I took it to Autozone and had the codes read and the only code showing is evaporative system error. Can,t find any vacuum leaks, also checked the gas cap. Anyone got any Ideas
