Answers :

Kinda vague description. If you mean to say that the car has the engine revving up while only going 40MPH, it would mean you are not getting through all of the gears.

If the engine does not rev up, and you can only go 40MPH with the trans shifting through all of the gears, it is probably not a trans problem.

You need to have a pressure test on the trans if the engine is revving up to only go 40MPH. The main part is a part called a Torque converter. It is the pump supplying pressure to the inside of the trans.

If a trans is slipping, then you can have pressure but the metal parts inside are not gripping.

My best advice is if there are no "check engine" lights on the dash, go to a Repair place which does work on engines. If the problem is the trans, they will send you to a trans shop. Can not say the same for starting with a trans shop. Too many bad operators who would throw in another trans and "discover" it is a simple engine problem after charging you.

Fixya used to have a listing service for good shops. Do not know since internal Format changed here if that is still the case.
