Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Your trans is going into limp in. When the trans controller sees an issue that will prevent proper operation it will lock you in a single gear so cruising RPM's will be high if you don't limit speed.

There are dozens of possible causes for limp in including solenoids, speed sensors, wiring, pressure switches, internal trans issues and the trans controller itself.

The first thing that will need to be done is use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes are setting in the TCM and testing can be done from there.
