when driving car at 60 to 65mph the rpm's are at 2300 to 2500 rpm & I am not sure if the car has shifted into 4 gear. When take foot off gas pedal the rpm's fluctuate down to 1000.  At 65 mph the car should be around 2000 rpm's Is this a transmission problem? The transmission fluid  & filter were just changed. No problems before.   Second question when driving at 30, 40mph & you take foot off gas pedal the car still travels at these speeds for a long time before slowing down.  the gas pedal does not seem to be sticking.  What is the problem in these 2 areas? What should be checked to determine the problems

      Really sounds like normal operation. When not sure it's always worth it the have a mechanic test drive it.
