Hello, my name is***** the engine is revving high and the vehicle is just not moving then it may be the transmission. This vehicle has a history of transmission failures. If it simply lacks power then there are some common issues. Most of the time it is due to a failure in the air flow sensor or in the catalytic converter. I usually start by scanning the computer for codes to see if there are any faults set and then see what the sensors are reading which allows me to see what is going on. These are both common, but there are always other less common possibilities also. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need anything else.
