It is possible that the computer is the culprit. Most cars with computer controlled trannys will keep in 3rd gear and only shift to overdrive when the engine has warmed up sufficiently. It could be a problem with this system. The best place to take it is your local AAMCO or Mr. Transmission, or the dealer. A regular garage will just be guessing in some cases unless the problem is revealed after running the engine codes.

I have a s40 1.9d / 2000 plate,
In the last month or so the car loses revs when changing up to 3rd and 4th gear, I can only get 50 mph max in 3rd gear 80mp in 4th.
The car has just clocked 185,000 miles
Its a great car but a pai at the moment, I've had a service including fuel fillter change added fuel cleaners to the deilsel all to no avail

check or replace your thottle position sensor tps that trans needs to know where the throttle is to shift if it is bad it will do as you say wont shift to third
another telltale is it will act like it goes into lockup when shifting into reverse and stall the engine
