TRANSMISSION WILL NOT SHIFT PROPERLY

2000 Hyundai Accent

Transmission problem
2000 Hyundai Accent 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 103680 miles

Hello, My accent has an automatic transmission and it has been shifting down hard if you come off the interstate it will start down shifting very violently. To say the least it really gets your attention. I took it to the local mechanic he changed the fluid and it seemed to do better for a while (a week or so) now it is not shifting into third gear without a lot of RPM. I have a good Idea about these things but I am not sure if this is a sensor problem. About the same time this problem occured the car would start serging at Idle I wonder if the two are related?
