That sounds like a transmission that is slipping. Check you fluid level in the transmission. It should be full an look like cherry Kool-Aid. if it's brown/black and smells burnt you will need to get it flushed ASAP. If it looks and smells alright fill it to the proper level on the dipstick while its running.
