A truly slipping trans will have a spike in RPM on heavy throttle without a down shift.
That is exactly, I mean exactly, what is happening. You described it to a tee. I'm prepared to spend a little more money for a diagnostic at a new place which several friends have recommended. Want to see if they think the car has any value at all. Not sure what value that would be with it needing a new transmission but if I could get $500 or with any luck $1000 I'd be really happy.
