Why would an automatic transmission rev to 4500 RPM before shifting out of first gear?

sounds like your kickdown cable(gm) or rod (older ford) might be stuck or rusty on the rod style

Answerif its a 240SX, remove the AIV box and plug up the hoses that were attached to it, then re set your idle...voila

An automatic transmission might be slow shifting from first to second because of low transmission fluid. You might also have damaged the gears in the transmission at the area between first and second.

A car with an automatic transmission shifts itself from 1st to 2nd to 3rd when you accelerate. You don't need to shift it...that's why they call it automatic.

First thing to do is have a complete fluid and filter change. If that doesn't fix it, take it to a transmission specialist.
