RPM not shifting

I might be in the wrong thread for posting this but I'm in the need for help. I have a 2000 ford taurus se 3.0. When i go to drive the RPMS will shoot up to the 3 or above and not shift out. I have check my trans fluid and that is fine. Anyone know what it could be?

I think 230000 miles. It moves by coasting but when you press the gas it wont really move it just takes the rpms up. The od light isnt flashing

Pretty sure the trans is toast sir. Time for a rebuild. Sorry. But if it cost but wont accel then its slipping badly so something internal is bad wrong. So either rebuild or replacement.

If it works in reverse, the pump is working and the forward clutch is most likely worn.
If reverse doesn't work either, the pump, pump shaft and converter splines are likely problem areas.
