Check the neutral-saftey switch. If it is a clutch, the starter will generally engage and the car will generally lurch forward. Most newer cars are equiped with a switch that detects when the car is in-gear & wont permit it to turn over. Could be the clutch but go for the cheap fix first.

I guess my first question would be - are you saying it is slipping in 3rd gear ? If you push the gas pedal to the floor it should downshift into a lower gear. If it is slipping, or not upshifting into 3rd gear, I'm afraid chances are the transmission is toast. You can take it to a couple of shops for estimates but they will probably want to pull the pan and take a look inside.
Sounds like a drive shaft but you would hear a clonking noise so it could be the clutch gone ,if i was their with it infront of me i could soon tell you the problem but from afar ? ask a local mechanic to have a look for you as this is one of them questions its impossible to give a correct answer
Kindly tell us whether your engine starts up properly to idle . If yes , then your problem is with the transmission system or with the clutch plates . If the clutch plates are too empty , the gear would be almost stuck . If the car is in N-neutral , try pushing it and while moving slightly try to change the gear . Engine oil and transmission oil should be checked up regularly .
At present situation you will have to have your gear system unjammed or opened up by a professional and have your gear box replaced or checked for jammed gears which is pretty time consuming and difficult job . Else you will have to replace the clutch plates and youre ready to fly again .
Thanking you ,
