Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if the transmission may be in limp in. If a failure is seen that will prevent the trans from operating correctly then it will be locked in a single gear for forward operation, and it can be perceived as a lack of power since you aren't taking off in first gear. If it's in limp in it could be an electrical issue or an internal transmission failure.

Do you not feel the transmission shift at all?
