Hmmm sounds like the torque converter locking and unlocking.

If you are driving down the road 60 mph and just tap the brakes, not enough to engage them, you'll see the RPMs jump up. This is the torque converter unlocking. It take about a second for it to lock back up.

It may be that the sensor on the brake needs to be adjusted.

I'm sorry what I said can be confusing.

Normally the torque converter will lock, and when you tap the brakes it will unlock. It sounds like your brake sensor is engaged all the time so the torque converter never locks.

When you pull on the brake petal it allows the sensor to disengage and the brake lights go off and torque converter locks. Your RPMs go down.

Adjust the brake petal sensor so the brake lights go out. Then try driving down the road at a steady speed and tap the brakes. You should see the RPMs go up as the torque converter unlocks. Then go down as it locks back up.
