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.

It revs up like it's in neutral because power isn't being transmitted to the geartrain when this shift is happening. This is either being caused by a clutch or geartrain issue. If it were a clutch issue then it should have been progressive and you should have noted the fluid was burnt. The fact that it happened suddenly and there was a noise points to geartrain failure. If you found some metal but not a large amount or large pieces then it's likely a broken shaft or stripped splines. The trans would need to be disassembled to determine exactly what has failed.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
