If the engine runs, and engine rpm increases when you press the accelerator, the issue is in the driveline. This could be an engagement issue, such as shifter linkage. It could also be a broken universal joint, clutch, if it is a standard transmission, torque converter if its an automatic. Worst case would be a failed transfer case or transmission. A trained technician, like the ones at YourMechanic can quickly help you pinpoint the cause.
