Hey guys i just realised for the last week or so that my car isnt going into over drive doing 100kms and hour

It changes into 4th at 80 kms and hour and when i hit 100 theres no drop in revs or even at 120 its still revving 4th gear out

When i have the econ off it does it and when i turn it on theres no difference still the same,

It still has warrenty on the box,


I was told either is the solinoids or the oil pump in the box it self isnt working

To explain it better

When im driving along with my foot on the pedal say doing 80 kms, i will downshift from D to 3rd, goes into 3 instantly, revs go up, so then i will downshift from 3rd to 2nd, same thing, revs goes higher and it drops instantly into second, then i proceed to upshift back to D

But

When im doing 80 kms an hour with no foot on the gas, i drop it from D to 3, and it goes in and pulls the car back, then i drop it from 3rd to 2nd, still with no foot on the pedal, the revs drop under 1000rpm and stay there, dosent even bother to come back up,

But as soon as i touch the pedal, its in second gear and i just proceed to upshift,

So its not like it not going into 2nd, just that i cant feel it go in untill i touch the pedal and its there,

Hope i make sense lmao, trying to explain it
