It's automatic and the engine is revving, but the car is not moving very fast? Sounds like a dead torque convertor in the automatic gearbox.


Bingo. First thing I thought was slipping clutch, but then saw it was auto. Equivalent to a slipping clutch in an auto is a fubared torque converter (not locking up properly)
