    Sounds like the transmissionis is slipping. If so, you need to get it checked out but most likely it's too late for any help. You can check the fluid level and see if it's ok and if it smeels/looks burnt.

    I agree with pushrod. Most likely it is the transmission. Not a DIY problem at any rate, so take it to a shop.
