It used to do 1800 to 1900 rpms at 110km/hr but now it's up to 2000 to 2200. Did I maybe hit a sensor in the pan or on the tranny or is my transmission going. Or could my cam or crank position sensor be screwed because she jumps back and forth through rpms in cruise before this and I haven't gotten to fix it. Thanks guys and glad to be apart of ram forumz
Have you rechecked your tranny fluid to be at the right level?

Check when reached normal operating temperature
Set e-brake
Put in Neutral
Go pull the stick

When you did the fluid/filter change, did you have the battery negative disconnected? If not and assuming fluid level is good, then go do this.

If no change, then next thing to look at is TV cable adjustment. Make sure no slack.

If no change still, then drive get up to 45-50 to let it get to OD. While hold that speed, what do the RPMs do?

I have more suggestions after you report back....on the above. All of this ASSUMES that the only change is the fluid/filter change you posted about.
