Question about 2002 Hyundai Accent
Assuming this car has an automatic transmission I would recommend checking the transmission fluid level first. If it's down by as little as a 1/2 pint it can cause slippage which appears to be what your describing. If the fluid is low use caution adding fluid, over filling a transmission can cause more damage than running it low on fluid.
Note: the problem does appear to be the transmission by what you have said and there are other possibilities as to what might be wrong with the transmission but most cannot be cannot be fixed on the side of the road.
If it's a manual transmission then the problem is most likely a worn out clutch and/or pressure plate both of which require pulling the transmission to fix.
