I think there is an adjustment/calibration potentiometer in the RPM display, if I recall correctly. Might be off......

Check your trans fluid. If there is dark stuff in the fluid, then you might be slipping. If so, your tranny isn't long for this world.
The RPM gauge may be off, but we don't have any tools to verify it. Would this tool be available to rent from Autozone?

We've never changed the trans fluid on this car yet (only had it for 6 months). It most likely needs changing. Hopefully, it's not that bad of a problem if it is the transmission.
