At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.Google+

I just bought a 1997 automatic Rav4, when i accelerate above 60 mph on the highway it gets stuck at 4000 rpms and after 5-10 minutes it will shift back down to 3000 rpms.
