Saturn VUE: My 2007 Saturn Vue has been running at high rpms

Customer Question

My 2007 Saturn Vue has been running at high rpms ~700 idle, 2500acceletating to 25mph. It then rides at 2100-3000 at speeds greater than 35mph. From inside the cab it sounds like I'm driving with a lead foot even when not accelerating. It's a vibrating dull roar/deep whine. From under the hood there is a dark spot that has formed on the left side of the engine and it sounds like a playing card caught in the spokes of a bicycle. I had my transmission fluid serviced with no improvement. They checked my filters and said they didn't look bad? I've done a little research on Saturn vue problems with similar symptoms but havent had a ton of success. Any ideas what might be going on?
