Best Answer

throttle position sensor, wicked vacuum leak, or could be your lead foot mashing the gas pedal to the floor

also what you might be referring to could be a load on the engine, (such as an uphill slope) which would cause an automatic transmission to "downshift" gears to find a more powerful rpm.
