WHY DOES MY HAS TROUBLE SHIFTING INTO HIGHER GEARS?

2006 Ford Focus • 10,000 miles

I put transmission fluid into it, but it didn't help. Maybe it is trouble with the overdrive? It all started when I got onto I-40 and the car would get up to 70 mph and stop increasing in speed. When I slowed down and tried to speed back up, it wouldn't let me. I had to pull over and turn the car back off to get it back to 70 mph again. Yet I still had trouble and turned around and went home, I changed the transmission filter to, but it didn't help. O/D light is still saying the overdrive is off.

You need to get codes read. Free at some auto stores.
