fj45lvr is on a distinguished road

It would move from normal RPM up to high RPM suddenly (at a low speed there is no acceleration while this happens...I immeadiately let off on the gas and manually shifted it to a lower gear where it would then engage and I then try to manually shift back to drive (it would often then when back to drive upshift to drive and then operate properly).

This only happened a couple of times on a single drive (some 900 miles)....since I have been home I tried to drive it again and found that I could only upshift by manually taking it from Drive down to lower gear and then after it shifts if I go to drive it will shift there but as it accelerated it seems to drop out to high RPM instead of continuing to drive (I assume it is slipping).

I had a feeling that possibly the gear select is not staying put (on the transmission)??
