Are you saying when in 1st or 2nd the engine revs to 6000RPM before the car started moving?
What happens once moving, do the other gears work OK?

Almost sounds like the clutch is slipping.

That is exactly the issue stuck till 6000RPM in 1st & 2nd gear, the other gears operate fine. Gonna change the fluid because it is looking bad. If that doesn't do anything for me I am gonna grab a clutch kit and take it over to a buddies with a lift and figure it out. Another friend just gifted me the car a couple days ago.
