With no warning my transmission slips in forward if I rev it up enough it finally gets moving but reverse is fine. The fluid is full still redish pink and doesn't smell burnt. Any ideas

If it is slipping in all gears, chances are it needs rebuilt. In this case (if no check engine light has come on) I think a trans tech needs to drive it. It could be a bad trans control module, but that should have set the check engine light.
