I have a Honda civic 1997 automatic. on 1997 Honda Civic

Today, when i was driving the car in the traffic jam. i pushed the gas but the car did not move at all and with a large noise from the engine, meanwhile the RPMs went up. Does this mean my transmission broke? How much will cost to change 1997 Honda Civic automatic's transmission, if i need to change it? Thanks!

See if you can get it to someplace like AAMCO for a free diagnostic and estimate, then make a decision on what to do.

It might just be that a CV joint failed, pretty common.
