My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
Your model vehicle here uses a throttle position sensor.switch which is attached to the fuel injection pump.The computer uses the signal from this switch to allow kick down when accelerating/down shifting.If this sensor is at fault electronically this occurs and is a common component to fail and cause this issue here,most likely yours needs replaced.
Thanks Pete
