My car a 1997 model Honda CRV was observed that engine has to reach engine rpm to 4000 before shifting to another speed.

The problem occur when the vehicle is running at a sustain speed of 100 to 120 kph. No indication on engine overheating but temperature gauge indicates an intermittent rise in temperature. This causes also the warming of AC system when temperature gaute starts to indicate rise in temperature.

Vehicle AC fan stalls and dash light dim when I slow or brake.
