Revs increasing to 3000 on climb out of village. - Any Ideas???

OK, last week my wife was driving our L322 (2003 4.4 Petrol) into Salisbury from Devizes. Through one of the villages (Shrewton) there is a slight hill as you are coming out of the village.

Normally the car drops down a gear with a bit of throttle applied to keep to the 30mph speed limit.

On this instance though, she said the gearbox dropped down a gear, but then the revs started to increase to 3000 where they stayed until she was forced to pull over and switch off the ignition.

On restarting the car all was OK and its been OK over the weekend.

Any ideas? Sticky throttle? If so, where to dose it with WD40?

(There are no errors showing and the gearbox / TC was completely rebuild 2 years ago, car has done approximately 8000 miles since rebuild. Mileage now is just over 100K)

My guess is a transmission fault that sent the transmission into fail safe mode. This made the transmission stay in 4th gear requiring the higher rpms. Once the truck was restarted the fault was cleared. Watch it for a while and see if it continues.

I sincerely hope not as the transmission was only rebuilt last year with a new T/C plus radiator and trans oil cooler!! If it is then the car is going to be used as target practise by the Royal Artillery!!
