F350 Powerstroke Automatic Shift problem

I have a 2000 F350 Powerstroke with Auto transmission that shifts fine
as long as I don't accellerate hard. When accellerating hard at the
point where it would normally shift it just keeps the same engine
speed, no longer accellerates and doesn't shift. Letting up on the
accellerator causes it to shift and then continue accelleration. It
has around 120K miles. The check engine light hasn't come on. Any
ideas as to what might be the cause. I'd think it might be a sensor,
but then my expertise isn't a mechanic.
Thanks.

OK, my face is RED but with a smile. It'd probably been more miles than
I'd thought since changing the fuel filter. Change it and the air
filter (don't think the air filter was really bad) and now it
accelerates and shifts as it should. Just goes to show that those
scheduled maintenance things can be important. I'm in the process of
obtaining a cam sensor to keep on hand. After all the problems that
folks have with them, will be good insurance. Thanks.
