Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If it freewheels when it shoudl shift into third gear then either the overdrive clutch is not applying or there is a geartrain issue. If the fluid smells burnt or it was slipping before losing third altogether a clutch issue is more likely.

If the problem happened suddenly then there is a good chance the accumulator cover on the side of the valve body broke. Have you had the pan off?
