The very 1st thing to do is have the system tested for trouble codes related to the trans problem, u may have a defective trans shift solenoid.

Sounds like 2nd gear in the transmission is slipping. Cars usually shift at 15-20 mph from first to 2nd. First check the trans fluid.

The OBD drive cycle description is too long and drawn-out to post here. Any local shop that has access to this information should be able to print you a copy. (Normal driving will usually do the trick as long as it includes at least 5 miles of driving at speeds of 55 to 60 MPH.)

2nd to 3rd=28 to 32mph
3rd to od=48 to 50mph
these all change by how much throttle pressure is being use,
are you sure it's not fuel filter or plugs and wire surge your feeling
