I have 2001 sable, and when I depress gas pedal car doesn't speed up engine rpm's revs up but car won't pick up speed. And I heard a whistling sound from the engine compartment when depressing gas pedal. Any help would be appreciated this car is nickle and dime-en me,thanks.

Definitely the transmission. If it wasn't serviced and looked after intently, these transmissions can grenade. Sometimes you get the lucky ones that take the abuse.. but 7 of 10 times the trans fails when you dont change the fluid and filter.

Check the color and smell of your fluid......what I can best describe to you is, it should smell like fresh hydraulic fluid... it should never smell pungent and burnt. What could be best described as a UH-60 sitting in a hanger. If it does you got problems.
