Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

What you're describing is a transmission issue rather than an engine problem. If the engine runs normally but power isn't being transmitted to the wheels then the problem is in the transmission, either a hydraulic issue or possibly very low fluid level.

Do you know if any fault codes are setting?
