Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. This sounds to me (based only on your explanation) that the charging system may be putting out a bit too much voltage when engine RPM increases. I would have the alternator output checked out. Your alternator needs to be putting out exactly 14.4 volts DC. No more, no less. If the output is not 14.4, replace the alternator.
