Hi there. Sounds like the downshift solenoid is loosing power in the transmission. Check the harness to the transmission and make sure that its plugged in all the way. Also, the gas pedal could have a loose connection on the wiring. If the wiring is okay on the gas pedal, then I suggest replacing the downshift solenoid in the transmission. If you need further assistance with your vehicle sometimes loosing power and then downshifting when you let off the gas pedal and then pushing on the gas pedal right away and everything goes back to normal, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
