When warm and the engine revs (and the tach doesn't), does the vehicle still accelerate normally or does it miss, lose power, anything out of the ordinary?

This is a tough one to call because the loss of power but the engine sounds like it is reving. I will tell you that these vehicles had a lot of trouble woth the insturment panel. They go bad. It almost sounds like the trans is slipping. Is the trans fluid clean?
