What could cause a 1998 Toyota Sienna to hit hard and sputter a bit when the transmission downshifts from 3rd to 2nd or 1st Could it be an electronic adjustment or is the transmission failing?

It seems to me that it could be the transmission going bad I am not 100% sure. Visit www.siennaclub.org I am sure you can get better answers there.
