O.k.,since it sounds like the engine does rev up but the vehicle does not move as you can rev up the engine to around 2100 rpm before it starts to move the vehicle this sounds like the clutch has failed for the transmission/gear box.The clutch needs inspected to verify this is the cause here and the clutch then replaced as needed to correct this fault here.
