Hi rbowers2, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation this is what keeps us going to help.
Your clutch is slipping-when accelerating from a stop and rpm going sky high and vehicle not picking up speed the way it should-Replace the clutch assembly-
Dunno the costs bcuz it varies with location could be $70.00-$130.00 per flat rate hr-

Thank you so much! You really helped I just had one more question you didnt answer is this something that someone with some experience could do or is this something I definitely need to take to a mechanic?

Is this something that someone with some experience could do I don't see why not with all the tools/equipment available an experience DIY can accomplish it-saves money

Thank you! You truely have helped I do have one final question. If I drive short distances until I get this fixed(probly within the next couple days) can this hurt anything else in my car should I even attempt to drive it?
Again thanks you have been the biggest help during the process of fixing my car!
