put the car on ramps and check for power at the solenoid when the key is on and the pedal pushed on the floor. If you have power than you need to replace the kickdown soleniod on the tranny.

I need to do this, I have the same problem except my tranny will downshift in 4th gear if im not going over 40MPH.
