Your transmission is most likely toast, take it to a tranny shop to diagnose

No power when I push the gas


check for plugged exhaust system, dirty air filter, vacuum leaks, those have a mile of vacuum hoses. Also, check for bad fuel pump.

Idles to high to the point i dont have to touch the gas to drive...i can go 45 mph without touching the gas pedal


If you know for a fact the throttle plate is closed, and there are no vac leaks, the only thing left is the idle air control valve on the side of the throttle body. It may be stuck open.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air enters the intake thru the control valve.

My truck turns on, idles fine but when i give it gas it only goes about 3 mph. when i want to excellerate it goes nowhere


Not quite everything is fine.
Is the check engine light on ?
When you push on the gas pedal, does the engine speed change ?
Can you rev up the engine in park ?
What have you checked so far ?

Why dosent my car advance when i step on the gas pedal


From what you say Daniel, your kickdown cable need's to be adjusted, here's how :

Down at the pressure lever on the front of the trans, loosen off the cable retaining nuts so there is a little slack in the cable.
then start taking the slack out of the cable a little bit at a time;
Rest a long screwdriver on the end of the pressure lever, holding the screwdriver with one hand start opening the throttle with your other hand.

Just at the point the idle RPM barely rises, the pressure lever should just barely move.

Driving test; Going along a level road at 25 mph light throttle, floor the gas pedal.
The trans should downshift to first gear.

repeat the same drive at 28 mph, floor the gas pedal, the trans only downshifts to second gear.
