If you know the battery is good and have had it checked to be good,the alternator is bad.

Best Answer

Is that the reason its revving up loud but not going the speed also the cap is broken off the back of the alternator?

Could be,weak fire from alternator not charging.

But if it is reving high and not moving may need tp check your transmission fluid.

If engine revs and the speed does not increase. Sounds like your transmission is slipping. Check fluid level when warm. The color of the fluid should be a deep purple like grape jelly color. If it's brown it could be burnt. If the engine has over heated you have also over heated the trans fluid witch would case the internal "O" rings to crack losing pressure . Causing it to slip.
