The car is in "limp" mode.
You will only be able to access 2nd gear and reverse in order to get to workshop without causing damage. I have already answered on another page

    I have a 2009 VW Crafter loon wheelbase mini bus with gearbox problems. I believe it has an 'HQT' model box. It revs at 3,000RPM at 62 MPH. Is there a higher ratio gearbox that can be fitted.

    check around gear box repair shops to see if there is a replacement box that has an overdrive gear (5th)
    if it is an automatic , the problem may be that overdrive is not coming in and that will drop the rpm 250 rpm and increase the speed up to the 75 mph mark
    there is nothing wrong in the box as the rpm and the speed are about right in relation to the diff ratio(not mentioned )
    3200 rpm with a overdrive manual runs around 74 mph or 120 km/hr
    another method is to put a diff in with a taller ratio
    example --current 4.1 back to 3.2

    RPM's running alittle high at 60mph

    ram1105: when you shift out of overdrive the transmission actually is in a 1-1 ratio with the input shaft of the transmission. Meaning for every revolution of the input shaft, the driveshaft turns the same number. When you shift to overdrive, the ratio changes allowing the engine speed and input shaft speed to slow down while the number of RPM's increases on the driveshaft shaft. The change is not too significant. Usually about a 500 RPM change is normal. You may have a problem with slippage within the transmission overdrive unit.
    It may be advantageous to have the transmission pan dropped and it's contents inspected for debris. Older Nissan Automatics were not known for failures. The 3N71B was bullet proof and the 4N series which was just an overdrive added to it, were very reliable.
    My son, best friend and I road race Nissan 300Z's. There are a variety of gear ratios for the R200 differential. The 3:70 is the tallest factory setup on a production Z, which would give you the lowest RPM at a higher speed. Outside of that, the tallest tires you can run on the car will also lower the RPM's.Don't forget there is always a trade-off. When you make a gear and change to taller gears, the car is going to feel more sluggish off the line. It will take longer to attain 0-60 unless you increase HP & Torque. I can help you there if you want to know how to do it.

    one unit that operates ratio changes and is connected to the engine is that vacuum operated actuator on the transmission
    it is possible that that unit is failing , vacuum hose is leaking and that will cause ratio changes as the vacuum varies
    run the fault codes to check for wiring problems or VSS or TCM problems as well
