First thing to do is check the transmission fluid level. If it is full then you have some transmission problems and should be looked at by a transmission shop for proper diagnosis.

Thanks, this started two.days ago, and I have checked the transmission fluid, it's gadge, but I noticed the fluid smell burnt, I hope this is not too much of a problem

Burnt smell with the trany fluid is not good. Your transmission is going to need some attention by a transmission shop.

Thanks​ ATM, am trying to follow your instructions, just want to know if there's a particular fluid you can recommend, thanks once more.

Thanks a million man.

Good day man, just like I said, I followed every step that you advise me, then the car worked perfectly for let's say two days, and it's started again, though not as bad it was the last time, this time it vibrates alot when I try to accelerate, so just press a little, and when it stop moving forward, I off immediately and it will start driving again, what do I do?

Thanks for getting back, I will just have to take it in for overhaul.
