High RPM's

I own a 1994 jimny from Japan and was wondering if anyone had any issues with high rpm's. I can only get it up to 80kph which is sitting at around 6500 rpm. It is a 3 speed auto but it it feels like it doesnt shift into 3rd. Ive taken it to a mechanic few times and they said that there was no issue. Is this high rpm at that speed normal for this?

Welcome to the forum. No it isn't normal. Have you changed the transmission fluid, it should be a clear red colour on the dio stick.

So, figured it out. Ended up being the linkage for the shifter needed to be adjusted. It looked like it was in drive but actually it was in 2nd the whole time. One other thing though is when I hit an incline, it actually starts to slow down until I get to a level surface then it picks back up again. I'm guessing that might be normal and would probably have to shift into 2nd to get up a little faster.
