put in drive ... jk is it auto or stick and does it just sit there and rev or does nothing happen


Start with your fuel system. Have your fuel filter changed and your fuel pressure checked and verified. Sounds like your fuel pump may be on its last leg. There are other possibilities like a hard misfire, a sensor problem, etc, but start with what I said and post results.


What William said is important also....I misread you.... We need to know if you're saying the car will not MOVE or the engine will not increase rpms.
