I have a 2004 ford taurus sel wagon. I was driving down the road the other day and all of a sudden the car is revving up when I was giving it gas I looked down to see if it was in drive luckily I was able to pull over off the highway but I have no gears. I thought a transmission would at least slip gears once in awhile before it went out. Should I junk this car ? Any info would be greatly appreciated

Torque converter failure is most likely. Easiest test is checking the trans dipstick when the car is off and again when its on. If the fluid level doesn't drop with the car on, the pump isn't turning. Most likely cause is sheared converter splines. Trans has to come out for repair.
