Usually that's the first sign of a transmission going bad.Overdrive sometimes goes out first.Also it could be a bad transmission sensor.A diagnostic check should tell you so.The sensors are cheap and easy to install. In older GM cars with the TH350 tranny, the "kickdown" cable could also be broken or not adjusted properly.
