Question type: Maintenance & Repair

About 2 months ago, I drove my Chevy impala up a mild steep road and I changed it from D to 3rd gear to get more power. I immediately noticed the change in the sound of the engine. However, when I changed it back to Drive, I still heard the same engine noise. Now my car wastes more gas and it feels like my engine is being over-worked or something. Why does the car sound and feel like its on 3rd shift when its only on D? Any answers would be appreciate it

Could be the torque converter clutch.
