I have that same problem sometimes too, I think my mechanic said it was the oxygen sensor, nothing you HAVE to fix but it's a minor thing, $100 or something

It doesnt shift down, it just dips, so you can kinda feel it pull back a lil, but it's only for like a second

if it feels like you car is losing power as you put the accelerator down more, it could be your cylinder compression having faults, they check that during tune-ups, but it sounds like a good possibility
