Transmission will not shift for some miles, then when it does start shifting it downshifts alot on it's own

Sounds like it is worn out internally. I would have a trans shop drive it and give you there opinion and get a bid for the repairs.

Check to see if kickdown/shift control lever has fallen off. It uses a plastic bushing that wears away with time and then can pop off bracket arm. It's on side of throttle body linkage and goes down to trans lever. About 8-12" long
