Sounds like the transmission is slipping. Check the transmission fluid level. Make sure the car is running. The fluid should be red like cherry Kool-aid. If it's low add accordingly a little at a time so you don't overfill it. If it's brown and smells burnt have it flushed. I highly recommend BG brand.
