If the engine is revving higher and higher, but the car is slowing down, that sounds like a transmission issue. Check to make sure the fluid is clean and full. If you haven't done it for a long time, you may want to have the transmission serviced. You may have an issue with the filter being loose or plugged.

Oh ok no problem thank you I was also told it could be the air intake sensor what so you think?

It could be, but that wouldn't cause the engine to rev and the vehicle not to speed up. If that is the case, it sounds like the transmission is slipping. Let me know what you find. Also, check and make sure the trans fluid is clean and full.
