Few months ago my tranny went up, i was at a store, backed up to leave then put it into gear and engine rpms raced up but the car didnt move. Managed to crawl it home by matching the speed to the rpms.. Basiclly i had to make suer i didnt over rev, meaning i was going at like 10-15mph. Got it home checked the fuild level, which was good. Tried to drive it around again nothing..... would go in reverse and back up but when put in drive all the engine did was rev up and not move at all now. So being the day before i was to go back to college left it in the yard and said hell with the trannys probly fried.

Flash forward to today, my brother asked wahts was wrong cuz he needed to use it to move his jetski, told him what was wrong but to go check it. He says it moves in drive now and was driving it around. But he said it still over reves it u give it to much gas, like the speed cant keep up with the revs. My question is what the hell is wrong with it. This my first problem with a automatic all my cars were 5spds. Is the tranny bad? Should i change the filter and fluid? Is the torque converted the problem?

Sounds like a fluid pressure problem if all gears stopped working properly at once. This usually means a front pump or the related fluid circuits are leaking and/or not pumping correctly. My first thought was that your clutches were slipping, but that'd be really really odd to have them all go at once like that. If the converter failed, you'd know it. You're fortunate enough to not have a locking converter that's more prone to failures.

Sure your cooler isn't clogged?
