Sounds like the car may not be shifting gears. So the first thing you should do is check the transmission fluid. If the car is not an automatic check your clutch adjustment. If adding fluid or adjusting clutch doesn't fix the problem the transmission or clutch may be going bad. Another way to check transmission would be to go down highway at about 45mph then floor it as if to pass someone and see if car goes or revs up and doesn't take off right away. If it doesn't take off right away have clutch /transmission checked.

Why the rpm dose not go higher than 4000 rpm


The vehicle has a built in no load engine REV limiter to prevent damage to the engine from drivers who insist on "gunning the engine".

Rpm are way high. at 60 miles an hour the overdrive kicks in, rpm shoot up to 4000


Either the torque converter isn't staying locked-up
or your in third gear,not od, as you suggest.

In OD, which is fourth gear, rpm goes down, not up

So you know you have to go to a trans shop

Drive it like that one more day & you will ruin it,
as I suspect may have happened already

Try changing the throttle position sensor. It varies voltage to change rpm and if it is wet and shorted it will set maximum rpm.
