Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if you may be describing the transmission being in limp in. If the trans controller sees an issue that will prevent proper operation it will limit shifting. If the reason you can't go over 65 is high engine speed then the trans isn't shifting.

Have you checked for fault codes?
