If you particularly want it to shift, do it manually.
If it is not straining, it doesn't need to shift. If it is straining, you may have either a problem with the transmission, or a plugged up exhaust, catalytic convert or muffler, that is making it seem to strain even though the transmission doesn't get the proper indications that would cause it to shift on it's own.

Check you steering and duspension system. Check ball joints and steering linkages. With the vehicle in the floor have someone move the steering wheel side to side. Not whole turns just side to side movement while you look at the steering linkage to identify any loose parts. Then raise the vehicle and check your ball joints by grabbing top and bottom of the tires and shaking them.

On my 88 Samurai . its very slow im lucky to hit 60 mph ( down hill ) up hill i might as well push it.i removed the gas pedal bolt thats on the floor and still wont go any faster. its in correct timing,...

have you checked for timming advancement? this sounds like the advance plate in the distributor is sticking or not advancing. im not familar with your model car but if its fuel injected and the timming is not advancing because of this plate not moving you would lack horse power above a certain speed. a mass air flow meter / valve can also limit the volumetric efficiency of your engine and create a loss of power. these are a couple of things to check.

Check to see if the cable is stretched out,have someone push on the pedel while you check to see if the butterfly actuater is turning all the way when the pedel is pushed to the floor,if not there should be an ajustment on the cable.
