In park there is a rev limiter on this car. I'm assuming you mean 4000 rpm? The car, also has a top speed governor. It will cut back on fuel when you reach top speed. That's why I asked how fast you were going when it looses power. The tailpipe is not a good check for misfires. A check with an engine scanner will produce far better results, even if no check engine light is on.
