Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car begain to shake a little and if I pushed to
hard on the gas it would putter.yesterday I was on
my was to the mechanic driving on express way at
45 mph and the car started to rev like crazy and the
speedometer was going from 20 to 80 .i slowed
down got on the shoulder turned the car off and
popped the hood checked the oil etcetera. Well
when i turn the car back on it was making a terrible
putter sound and started to shake when I put it in
drive and pushed on the gas the car would not
move in drive or reverse but when I put it in neutral
the car seemed fine.I had to leave it on the side of
the eway .now I have to find a way to get it out and
tow it to a mechanic. Do you think my vehicle is
salvageable or do you think the problem is going to
cost more then what the car is worth  I honestly
don't know if my car is CE LE LE V6 I don't have my
vin in front of me .thank you for reading. Marisol
