Why would a car idle too fast at times and the RPMs go up in all gears except 5th?

Check the throtle linkage to make sure it is free. If it is, take the idle control soloneid off and clean it and where it mounts on the throtle body

2 rpms? Your automobile engine probably runs around 2000 rpms. At 2 rpms the engine would stall and stop. However, many automatic transmissions jerk a little bit as they shift gears. I suspect this is what is happening to your Pathfinder.

It would depend on the gear ratio and transmission. stock tires 235/70r16: auto(O/D) with 3.55 gears =2160 rpms auto(O/D) with 3.73gears = 2270 rpms manual with 3.73s = 2360 rpms

When you are shifting gears, your RPMs will go down because your clutch is being pressed. If your RPMs don't go back up when you release your clutch, you should see a mechanic.

Much quicker off the line, but the trade off is lower top speed and higher RPMs at highway speeds.

What I think happened is that something with your gears went wrong so that is what is messing all of your rpms up. But, for the other problem I do not know a thing about why it would do that.
