Downshifting while moving

I had this downshifting problem the other night. I was at a trafffic light light turned green gave it some gass got up around 20-25mph at the truck downshifted and then up shifted and it happen around 35mph also after I gave it some more gas it work fine. Then last night same thing happened downshifted around 20-25mph then upshifted but then the check engine light came on. Has anyone experienced this problem and if so what is the remedy? the truck is a 04 tacoma with 159k on it

Send a message via AIM to whippersnapper02
Get a code reader and see what the code is first.
