Thumbs down 4000 RPM Governor??

Another question on my 1995 E320 Wagon--
When in park or neutral the engine will not rev above around 4,000 RPM's. It just sort of shakes like a governor is on the car. Then when I went to pass someone on the road it wouldn't go above that mark either. There's lots of pedal left at the cutoff point. I'm confident there isn't any kind of engine problem because the car runs perfect and has only 41k on it.

One More: When in Drive and on a slight incline (like when pulling out of a street), is the car supposed to slip backwards? It goes when you press the gas, but my Volvo 960 (and all my other auto transmission cars) never roll back on hills. Is this normal in the E-Class?
