While driving my Nissan Sentra gxe on the freeway it would not go past 40 and it keeps slipping into neutral. I had to pull of the freeway. any ideas?

There is an internal problem in the transmission. That why it's default to neutral. You to replace the transmission or get rebuilt.

Transmission disengaged (as if I had put it in neutral) while driving freeway speed. Tried to accelerate and got nothing but engine RPMs.

Unfortunately it sounds like your automatic transmission clutches are worn out but old and dirty oil can also cause this along with a blocked transmission filter, transmission service might get you out of trouble but a transmission specialist would be advisable.

When I drive my Mazda 626 (97) in high way, at about 110 KM/Hour speed. Sometime the tachometer will suddenly go up and come down (e.g. go up to 4000 RPM or 5000 RPM from normal say 3000 RPM in one or two...

Does your Mazda have a standard trans (clutch), or automatic.
If it's automatic, the tranny might be slipping, and if it's a standard shift the clutch may be slipping. Does the actual driving speed (not engine rpm's) seem to stay the same when this happens? If you are still traveling at the same speed even though the engine speeds up, it's your tranny or clutch. I don't think the timing belt and tensioner have anything to do with this. countrycurt0
