Today I went thru a drive thru, put my car in park. Heard it rev up on its own a few times. When I put it into drive to leave, it did not move and the engine just revved up like it was in neutral.

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I turned my car off then back on, drive
worked. Stopped at a stop sign and car
wouldn't move again. Just revved up. Any
ideas?

Sounds like the transmission is slipping. Extremely common in the 07- 09 outlook, Acadia and enclaves. Check the transmission fluid level first. If its low fill it to proper level. If its full but it brown/black and smells burnt the transmission is junk. Call any GM dealers service department, they extended the warranty on those transmissions because of all the problems.
