oh I see ,so this just happened The 40 mph stuck tells me you are in limp mode ( lack of power where the engine computer detects major fault and restircted performance ,and that can be caused by several things , Throtle body ,MAF sensor ,Misfire or Trannsmion issues The most common on these silverado is the TB body , now ussualy it willnot comed on used engine ,they used your old one you have to have them recheck it for you

It also revs on its ownWhen it's on driveI'm taking back tomorrow
Automotive Expert
the revving on its own is another indication of TB body issue

Thanks for knowledge
