Not a sticky accelerator cable causing this?...when the cable frays it can be pretty erratic.

possibly a transmission problem, when it kicks down a gear?? you had the tranny serviced at all, what conditions the fluid in?? wipe the tranny dip stick on a white bit of paper, if it's not bright red it needs changing
