    I have the same problem - but my speedometer is working, the check engine light is on and sounds like the car is stuck in 2nd gear. I can drive it up to 60 mph.

Speedometer not working, high revs & won't shift out of low gear


Your issue is a bad "speed sensor". Your speedometer is controlled by a sensor in your transmission, and when it quits working your speedometer will not work, it can cause very irregular shift patterns and slipping. Replacing your speed sensor should resolve your issues.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
