Default My 02 civic wont acclerate?

I have a 02 civic and i was driving it and all the sudden my car stopped acclerating when i pushed the gas. What could possibly be the problem cause i looked on the internet and i cant even begin to find whats wrong with it and im a girl so i dont wanna take it to a mechanic and them take advantage od me if i dont even have and idea whats wrong with it.. Could it be the transmission??ok i was driving my car and it seemed like the gears (as in 2nd and 3rd) wouldnt catch, and it would acclerate past 20 miles per hour and then i had to keep turing the car off so that when i did turn it back on it would work for about 10 minutes and then it just stopped acclertaing all together, no power even to reverse, but i do see the rpms going up but no power. Does anyone know about how much it would cost to fix (estimate)

It could be the throttle. you may take it to the dealership if you are still under warranty.

i own a repair shop ,and first off you need to tell us if it feels like the transmission is slipping or that it just doesn't have any power,without knowing any of this its really hard to answer a question about it,if you had said you gave it gas,and the engine revved up, but the car didn't go anywhere,then i could say its probably the transmission,but please be more specific when asking a question ,information for us ,is as important as it is to you,the more you tell the better we can answer,good luck hope this helps.

it could be the trans but if it works for 10 min after the key is off then i doubt it...the only thing that comes to mind is the tps sensor is goin bad ive seen a couple of them on civics...never causeing that problem but they most certianly the check engine light on?...its hard to say really whats goin on without actually driving it
