first see if its got a check engine light if it does that could be the answer to the problem. next if you mean you put the car in gear and rev the engine and it goes nowhere than the trans is either bad or the shift sensor is. i doubt its the coolant temp sensor a good test would be to just let the car idle for a half hour and see if the radiator fans come on. but like i said check the engine light first.
I think you have an engine speed sensor fault. its not reading the engine speed or the motion speed. needs these two to change speed and ( gear). one is connected to the abs unit and the other is on the engine. usually if they both go its down to the gear box ecu. you can check if you have it on a ecu reader. will have fault codes or not be read at all.
Could need new filter, cheap but p.i.t.a. and if it doesn't work you just put new filter in dying transmission. Could also be over or underfilled or as my dad found out, bugs like transmission fluid as a place to go die in and got stuck in a passageway. Sometimes you get away with using high mileage fluid, sometimes not.
Only recently has my 97 Honda Passport been acting like the transmission slips...I'll be in Drive and the revs jump from 2 to 5 or 6; I'll drop it to 3, and it settles down. Last week, I was in Drive, then went to 3...then back to Drive and it jumped...and the Check Trans light came on.
Might want to remove the pan and look how much debris is in there. they can draw debris into the filter for like 15 minutes until it just wont let any more fluid go by then trans will neutralize. when you let it sit the debris by gravity falls back to the bottom of the pan. If this is the case changing fluid and filter may be a temporary fix but honesly when theres that much debris in there it needs rebuilt--in fact sometimes after fluid and filter change they wont move at all. The thick fluid and dirt provides some pressure. Hope I helped. Thanks
