Hello, my name is***** you for the question. This car has a history of transmission issues. Unfortunately reverse is the first gear to fail when this occurs. If you put it in gear and it appears to be binding or slipping and the engine revs and the car does not move then the transmission is failing. When this happens you can typically limp it along for a while before it affects the forward gears but it eventually will need to be rebuilt. I hope this helps. Let me know if you need further assistance.

The car moves. It goes about 10 feet then slows down.

the engine doesn't Rev up at all. It sounds like it does when driving forward

If it gets to the point where it just will not move then most of the time it has a fracture in the internal clutch housing. This causes this to happen.

Yes, and it has internal clutches that are in packs. Not like the clutch of a manual transmission.
