I will add to the other solution having owned a trans shop ,that you got to use the correct fluid and once you repair it ,you have to be sure to use Lube Gard Additive. No other brand and only on a rebuilt unit. There is the possibilty if you change the fluid it will slip worse ,if it's burnt now. I have told customers they will only get home and many broke down right at the sideway to there driveway.

have you checked transmission fluid (auto) gearbox drive bands will slip if insufficient fluid.if level is okay gearbox needs service or replace.if it is a (manual) clutch can start to slip from wear and tear.

if it is an HEI distributor remove the cap and rotor there is a module under the rotor take out the two quarter inch screws and unplug it take it to your local parts store and have it checked that is the module that controls the injection rate,if it is not HEI then do an injector cleaning,also try running a tank full of high octane gas through it the injectors sound like they have gunk built up in them,hope this gives you a place to start

If this is a manual transmission and you get slippage at acceleration, then your clutch is slipping.
An adjustment might help a little bit, for a while, but I think I'd prepare myself for having the transmission pulled and the clutch replaced.
The clutch assembly is made up of 4 main elements: (1) the flywheel (bolted to the rear end of the engine crankshaft), (2) the pressure plate bolted to the flywheel (a spring loaded device that applies pressure to the clutch disc), (3) the clutch disc (sandwiched between the flywheel and pressure plate) that connects, via friction, the engine to the transmission, (4) the throw out bearing, which pushes against the fingers of the pressure plate to release the clutch disc engagement.
I'd seriously consider having some one do this for you....having to remove the transmission is not something for the faint of heart. Serious injury could result if the transmission were to fall on you while pulled back from the engine bell housing.
Oh, and another thing...I'd replace the pilot shaft bushing while I was in there.
If you really want to do this yourself, then go to your local auto parts store and purchase a vehicle specific repair manual. It should outline the steps specific to your car.
Remember....be very careful!
