First of all, check your trans. fluid with the engine warm. You may only be low on trans. fluid. You can raise the car and do a trans. service. it's messy but doesn't cost alot to do. Just remove the trans pan slowly and allow the fluid to drain as you're removing the pan. Take the pan down and drain the pan and take alook of what's in the bottom of the pan. As long as you don't see metal shavings you're ok. You will see black graphite material which is the clutch materail's normal wear. Replace the filter and bolt the pan back on. Don't over tighten the bolts, just good and snug. Fill trans. back up, this should be about 4 qts of trans. fluid. Start and run, check for leaks and check to see if the trans. works better.

It sounds to me that your 4th gear is just starting to slip. It will gradually get worse until you are forced to overhaul the transmission.

My recommendations:

Clear the codes and drive the vehicle while at the same time, putting some money away so you will have the funds for an overhaul. It may do like this for a few weeks or several months, but it is well on its way,,,

Check the vacum lines going to the distributor and transmission. If they are leaking it could be your problem.

hello from what you explained i take it theres no check engine lights on what it sounds like is a basic increase on your idle screw get somone to help push pedal down underhood look to see where gas cable pulls back when gas pedals appled have them release slowly now watch where it stops against a set screw that is your adjustment rpm range should be somewhere between 750-900 rpm depending on vehicle if this doesnt solve most likely tps sensor{ throttle position sensor} goodluck
