so you saying the RPM gauge changes......not good. either the trans. is slipping or the trans mission kick down is engaging ..

I'm going to have to suspect a clogged EGR valve....because it is at the specific RPMs that the EGR wants to engage on de-cel....if buggered with carbon would be delayed or inappropriate engagement~ clean it with brake cleaner or replace it~
