On a three speed automatic (no overdrive) it wouldn't kick down until it reaches third gear. Then it should kick down into second. At 15 to 20 MPH you may not be in third yet.

If you have the problem at higher speeds when you've gotten into third or your overdrive, if you have one, check the kickdown linkage from your carburetor. It may need adjusted or it may be disconnected.

Hope this helps,

Bob
