Have you checked the transmission fluid,to be full?AN d if full does it smell burnt?

If your tranny is slipping you might be low on transmission oil. It needs oil to maintain enough hydraulic pressure to keep the car in any gear. Check that first. If that's fine you want to listen for grinding or other noises... however, with modern trannys this is not always the case

Trans fluid is topped off. Theres no grinding. Its like its in neutral and you can rev it freely. Now before it would slip, the car vibrates as if loosing power. Thank you guys for getting back to me i really really appreciate it.

The best way is to have the computer scanned for codes,that is if the engine light is on,to tell if it is the issue.
