You are probably in what they call "LIMP MODE". You'll need to have it scanned to see what is causing it, and please do yourself a favor, pay the money to have it scanned properly by a compotent mechanic, because if it's something faulty in the transmission, and you don't take care of it now, you'll could be spending $1000-$2000 or more in the near future. Remember, a scan doesn't say you have to let them fix it, and it isn't crazy to take it for a second opinion either.

Car feels like it is misfiring in 4th gear.


A misfire feels like the engine is studdering, is that what it does? If it is a misfire you will also have a blinking check engine light when it occurs.

Automatic transmission trouble


With so little info, you can only guess. Most computer controled transmission default to either second or third gear if there is an electrical problem.

The mitubishi trans has sensors on the trans that if they are hooked up wrong, it wont shift. If the fluid is full and clean, odds are you have an electrical problem. Could even be a fuse or the computer.

Hope this helps.
