I'm a bit confused why my car will shift to 1500 Rpms, then when I go to accelerate the Rpms won't change unless I let go of the gas and then press down again. It doesn't bug me or worry my I'm just interested! :)

I wish I understood what you're asking but I don't. Maybe missing some details, like auto or manual.

If you need to let off then back on to shift it can be because of tq convertor lockup/ of lack of ( not 100% which does it)

Sounds like your shift solenoid may be gunked up. Check Engine Light pop up? Could also very well be what money_man was saying, but generally there is fluid that goes to the TCC.

So youre saying your transmission wont downshift to a lower gear for acceloration? That sounds like its either a TPS/accelorator sensor out of calibration, or a bad kick down switch.

It will accelerate to 50mph and then shifts 1500-2000rpms and will stay there while I accelerate. It really only started when it started to get cold. I dont think its causing any damage or anything, just bugs me. But on the bright side. I replaced my shocks and front end links:)
