Default acceleration issues

2002 GS300
When stopping then accelerating kinda fast, like at an intersection or stop sign, I get absolutely no power. Kind of dangerous if I'm trying to get out before traffic comes.
Was told it was the YAW sensor and had it replaced, but it still does it.
Seems like it will not down-shift correctly.
I played with it in a parking lot last night and sometimes it would do fine, squeel the tires . . . . and other times not.
I've also noticed that when moving in slow traffic there is a hesitation between 1st and 2nd. Also, if coasting downhill from a stop (no throttle) I get a hard shift from 1 to 2.
Any ideas as to what I need to look for? I've been told that Toyota transmissions are extremely dependable, but right now it I'm leaning toward something there.
