99 TIP Tranny concerns? :-(

Hello there! I know it's been awhile...growing up and getting matured is taking it's toll on me

While driving this morning, I noticed the following in order:
- Shifter is on D mode and I notice the gear shift down from 5 to 4 and the MPH went down from 75 to 60 and when I stepped on my gas, the RPM went all the way to 4k but my speed didn't change.

- After switching it from D mode to M mode, everything is fine.

- Slight uphill to my work, still on the M mode, my foot was on the gas but it's not moving, so I downshift to 3 and let go of the gas pedal, RPM was on 1.5k, speed was on 5 mph but the indicator shows still on the 3rd gear. So I stepped on the gas pedal again and nothing change.

There's no CEL light on the dashboard or any other light except my airbag.

what do you think it is?

How many miles on the car? Do you have any blinking lights on the Tip section of the dash?

nope..except for regular oil change and just recently got my brakes fix, about a month ago.

I'm suspecting that I need a transmission service and I hope it is not too late..no serious damage *crossing finger* It has 86k miles already and the last time the major service was done was 37k mi. ago

I was having a few random odd things going on with my Tip, not as bad as yours, and they all cleared up after I had mine serviced at 86K miles.

*UPDATE*
driving home at 75mph, i notice that the rpm is above 3k and if i let go of the gas pedal, it will go down "immediately" to 65mph and once i stepped on the gas pedal again, it takes just a few sec to accelarate again and rpm goes to 35k before it shift again.
