Your transmission is not downshifting when it needs to. Take your car to the mechanic and have them reset the transmission computer. Another possibility would be a bad oxygen sensor in your exhaust piping. This measures the oxygen content in the gasses exiting the engine, allowing the ECU to make correct adjustments to air/fuel ratios, fuel delivery, etc. A new sensor shouldn't cost you more than $150

another problem could be the transmission filter... same thing happened to me... it goes blank when i hit the gas... no shift change... and that was my problem so far.. and maybe more to appear...

maybe a bad ecu... your ecu controls your low rpm's.
