Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey guys.. I have a 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix, and I keep having a problem what seems like the
transmission as I'm driving. I'll be driving down the road I Let go of  the gas and I step on the gas again

check the kick down cable most cars that age had one and they can stretch or wear out and not allow the trans to properly drop down a gear when throttle is increased
