It sounds like the fluid level is low-this will cause engine to rev up while it is trying to change gears
the other problem may be that the clutch plates in transmission may be bad
automatic trans having clutch plates and they do go bad
if fluid level is ok try draining fluid and replacing it
if that does not work u need to have the transmission looked at.

    Yes I'm sorry to say but they seem to all do that. Mines 97 automatic 2.0 and I'm seeing a pattern. Your car's transmission is having trouble changing gears and likely even changing fluid, filter, and a possibly leaking seal won't fix it but will help. You cannot check the fluid they sealed these pans, just have to change it. I'm told a change takes 3.25 quarts (the book will only say "take it to dealer".

Is it normal for the revs to stay up when changing gear in a 2002 4x4 3.0L turbo diesel navara?


do they revs drop off when taking pressure off accelerator pedal when out of gear? if only staying high during gear change it would suggest a worn clutch friction/pressure plate so the engine isn't slowing down when clutch is depressed .I'd also have the OBD codes read to see if there is a sensor/switch at fault , but sounds like the clutch to me
