He was being lazy. I had...

    Last night my 2007 manual Patriot with 90,000m was driving fine until it revved so badly that I stayed in fourth, then within two miles I was down to third and finally had to creep home 10 miles in first. The revving was like I'd shifted into second instead of fourth. This morning I went out...
