What does it mean if your car won't accelerate when stepping on gas petal? on 2003 Saturn Vue

I have a 2003 Saturn Vue AWD, while trying to accelerate as i was getting on freeway car sounded like it wasn't changing gears. I tried to speed up and car wouldn't go, seems like it couldn't fo faster than 30-40 MPH. I also noticed it was beginning to run hot, went just past half mark on temp gauge. Has anyone had this problem?

bring it to a tranny shop for diagnostic run. poss. issue with tranny. tranny tech. will advise.
Is the "Check Engine" light on? If it is, is it blinking at times? If it is blinking, that would be an engine misfire. Misfires often feel like erratic shifting.
