Hello. This sounds like your clutch is slipping. Check the transmission clutch to see it is slipping and needs to have the clutch replaced. If you would like to have this looked at for you, an expert technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose the slipping problem and advise on a repair.
