Sounds like a month or two at most of normal driving before your transmission completely gives up. How many miles are on the vehicle and has the transmission ever been serviced? Also make sure it has enough tranny fluid, as this will cause it not to want to come out of park. good luck.
The transmission is probably the problem. If it is going over 3,000 rpms it sounds like it is not shifting right. I would check the tranny fluid level. And see how dirty the fluid is. If the fluid is real dark it is burnt and needs to be changed with new filters. If that does not fix the problem your torque converter is going out. Thanks
I would think that you would not need much done, if the timing belt was just changed, but perhaps your transmission servicing should still be done, as that would not have been done with the belt change. Of course, your normal oil changes need to be done too.
Number of miles since last transmission filter cleaning and transmission fluid replacement could have a strong impact.
Check the fluid level and fluid color and odor.
If level is ok, and color appears good (gold or red) and odor is NOT burnt smelling, then a clog in one of the pumps inside the transmission could be the culprit - take it to your local transmission shop.
If the fluid is any of the other issues listed above,
Drain the fluid (using a 4 dollar drill pump available at Harbor Freight) via the transmission dipstick tube. Now pour in an identical amount of new fluid (amount is not specified because you cannot get all the fluid out this way - so add only the amount that you are able to remove).
Put a few miles on it and it will be much better.
BTW - I assume that you have checked for the obvious vacuum leak - cracked vacuum hose, or disconnected hose....
