is it an automatic? I think it should downshift right around 35.

Can you provide some details on the car (year, type of transmission, mileage) and more details on yours issue? The more we know, the more we can help you out.

Is it tuned? If it is, the shift points/ firmness is probably altered, so it may shift and downshift harder than normal.

Info

The car is a 2001 it has 125,000 miles on it he got a new air system in it and a bran new battery in it. I believe it is the downshift on it but why would it is very irritating for it to have such a hard jerk to it. He installed mods on it there is a chip for settings 1,2,and 3 dont know anything about that stuff really but have a cheat sheet thing that i dont understand at all.

Since it is an auto and a chip is installed, most likely the shift firmness and shift points are changed from how it came from the factory. If you really don't like how it shifts than I recommend removing the chip. Or keep it on the mildest tune the chip has.

I would also begin educating yourself on that cheat sheet the seller provided. Or get a trusted mechanic to explain it to you.
