It needs rebuilding. The upper gear(s) are not locking in, so your likely wearing out your clutch when you drive fast. Get it rebuilt.

Hi, my car does not change gear during driving. I am told the transmission is stuck in 3rd gear. Even when taking off from a complete stop, I have to rev the engine before the car moves. Sometimes after a long drive the engine would switch off and only start after a 10 minute break. What could be the problem?

hi sounds like your high revving has accidenetaly pushed off one of the turbo boost pipes or possibly even split a hose causing it to leak boost pressure get a freind to lightly rev the engine
so you can hear where its coming from if youve split the hose you should find it quite quickly with the bonnet up, or if need be get car up on axle stands and listen for it underneath, for a temporary fix and i mean temporarary wrap the split with gaffer tape or duct tape will restore your boost but not if you give it max revs good luck

If the oil level got too low, it may have caused serious internal damage.
If that is the case, the noise usually gets louder and/or faster, the faster you rev the motor. Only an experienced mechanic can determine for sure exactly what the extent of the damage is.
