DO I HAVE A COMPRESSION PROBLEM?

1980 Mazda RX7 • 100,000 miles

Do I have a compression problem in my 1980 mazda rx7 engine if the rpm's top out at 5500 when I floor it in 2nd gear? It stops accelerating and then when I let off the gas pedal and allow the gear to shift into 3rd the car begins to accelerate again? The transmission is a 3 speed automatic. How do I fix it, I don't have a rotary mechanic anywhere near me.

Sounds more like the transmission is slipping-have it checked further

The trans isn't slipping, its not continuing increase in rpms
