2000 Mercury Cougar V6 6 Cyl 2.50L

Transmissions & Drivetrains

Not Shifting out of third gear

I have a V6 mercury cougar 2000, automatic. It is not shifting out of third gear. When I get to the 3rd gear, and drive at 60 mph, the rpm rises to about 3000 or a little more. Even if I keep on pressing the gas the RPM keeps on rising and does not shift out of the third gear. Then, the transaxle sign flashes in the dashboard with the exclamation mark. What do you think the issue might be?
