If you fluid it to low it could cause it. Check it while the car is warm to get the best reading. ** Already checked the fluid, it's fine. I'm wondering about the torque converter because it seems to only do it at the bottom end of a gear, almost like it's having trouble deciding what gear to be in and the engine RPM's jump back and forth about 250-500rpm while it's doing it.
