First thing to check is if ur overdrive button stucks, 4500 rpm it does in the 3rd gear. There should be a light at your dashboard what indicates it. Of course it could be burned out after so many miles. Just play with the button and see if its not moving correctly. If thats not working drive on an empty street and drive with low accerleration 38 - 42 mph, the car should go into its sweet speed shifting to its 4th gear and going with 1600rpm. If thats not happening and you are running with 2500 or 2600 rpm, visit your local transmission shop, because your car wont shift in its 4th gear.
