Do you mean when you start climbing through 3rd instead of going to 4th it downshifts back into 2nd? Normally I'd say a sensor but a sensor should be throwing a CEL if it's bad. If your internal clutch is worn out the transmission may be slipping inside and downshifting in an attempt to reengage. Or it could be a bad solenoid or servo not sending the right signal. Or low oil pressure inside the transmission maybe. Try flushing the tranny fluid and changing the filter. Check the pan magnet for little bits of metal, if there's metal in the pan, your tranny is going bad. Other than that, Idk, that's a tough one.
