120 km/h is about 75 mph for me. 3400 rpms is not too high. I had the same question. My research says that this car just runs in that range at that speed. No problem needing fixed here.

check at a service dealer's but I think that you have a 4 speed with over drive and that accounts for the drop in rpm's at 80 klms/hr

The RPM of my engine remains at 4000 while my speed is 120 km/hr


I guess that you have a manual transmission. If that is the case you have a clutch on the way out. Slow slippage that gets worse as the plate gets hotter. If an automatic it is possible that the overdrive is not holding due to low pressure in the box. Have a pressure test done on the box--- have the fault codes read. From experience 120 kph is around 3200rpm for most cars and the 800 rpm difference indicates that the o/dive is not working as it should.

This may been an ignition module or a MAF sensor, this car may need to be diagnosed using a OBD I computer code reader to accurately diagnose the problem.

Stuck in first gear.


Sounds like transmission may be in "Limp Mode" which occurs when problem detected in transmission, to allow you to get to repair shop and save transmission at same time. Have it diagnosed at dealer or transmission shop & don't drive it any more than needed until then. Transmission replacement gets very expensive so get it in to shop a.s.a.p. so it doesn't get to that extent, and it may turn out to be a faulty sensor or something minor.
