My 1999 GMC Jimmy is not accelerating when I push on the gas, what is wrong with it?

Asked by Dec 05, 2016 at 11:18 PM about the 1999 GMC Jimmy

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Coming home today I felt a let down on acceleration after a corner, and
then I push on the gas to go and the car pops up to 4k rpm but the speed
doesn't change... I then lay off the gas pedal and the car sort of "bumps"
forward and I press on the gas and I can accelerate again. I come to a stop
light and once it turns green, I push on the gas and the same problem
arises, the car goes to 20 mph and the rpm climbs -  going from 2k to 4k
with no speed change... I then lay off of the gas and I feel the same push
forward, and the car accelerates normally... What is wrong with the car???
Please help!

Sound like eithe rut tranny is slipping or the transmission control module is messed up. A code scan might be the first thing too do just too see if there might be any trans related codes, then maybe a tranny shop if none are found.
