transmission will not upshift

Hi All,

my car is 330i 2001 with automatic transmission and the problem with my transmission is if I increase my speed the car stays in same gear and the rpm increases but the transmission will not shift up (only from 3rd to 4th gaer) then I go to manual and put it in 4th my self (smoth manual shift). other gears are fine and smoth and car upshift from 3rd to 4th at low speeds and RPMs!

any body ever had this same problem? and how did you solve it?

I'd take it for a scan, could be in a limp mode.
