    If your rpms are going up but the car isn't accelerating, I would guess the clutch is gone.

    Try this: Put it in 3rd on a hill, let your rpms fall to about 2k, and hit the gas pretty hard. You don't need to floor it. See if the rpms go up with the car accelerating. If so, you have a clutch problem.
