It may be slipping tranny or you may experience clutch slippage.
Clutch slippage is evident when the driver has the clutch engaged and the engine's speed increase but the vehicle's road speed does not.
To verify that:
Depress the clutch pedal, shift the transmission into higher gear and increase the engine's speed to approximately 2,000 rpm.
Slowly release the clutch pedal until the clutch engages. The engine should stall immediately. If the engine does not stall within a few seconds, The clutch is slipping.
*depress the clutch pedal to end the test quickly.
Hops! Is this a manual transmission? :)
