If the rpm is redlining, the transmission is slipping. Is the ransmisison fluid level correct and condition good?
Did you check for trouble codes?

Never investigated transmission beause, if it stops to rest for about 10 to 20 mins it runs fine for about the same amount of time

Then you should start and I would suggest getting a scan to check for trouble codes.
