While driving on the freeway I noticed my RPMs were high. Usually the gauge will read ~2.5 while cruising at 65 mph, but this time it read 3.5 while doing the same speed. The only time they decreased was if I took my foot off the gas. Any acceleration brought it up to 3.5 where it stayed. Once I got into the city the car was slow to take off from a red light and once it did you could feel the shift.
Is there any sort of power mode switch or button near the selector ?
These are called “Power”, “Overdrive” , “economy” (same thing ) ,or “snow” (different job.)
I think you have one … it could be defective of course, but its rarely used.
Could have been bumped and jammed on.
