When I'm driving at 120kmph on the high way my car's rpm are at 4500! And if I give it more gas it will hit the red line. I dont get why its doing that even at 110kmph my rpms are at 4500. What could be causing this to happen, I'm wasting more gas.
Do you
have the same problem?

Sounds like it is in limp mode have a trans guy scan it for codes it could be an internal problem which is likely.

If the tranny was rebuilt tin that short of time it still should be under warranty normally they are good for 12k miles warranty it cold be electrical but if inside trans shouldn't cost anything.
