No it all says its in each of the gears I put it in, but when I hit the gas, only RPM'* move, nothing else unless I'm down hill and the car just rolls down.

Ok then it'* one of four things:

1) Low fluid level.
2) Fluid blocked from entering valve body.
3) Front pump needs replacement.
4) Torque converter needs replacement.

I hoping someone else will chime in and comment.

I was just gonna say that I don't know how much confidence you put into your mechanic, but if it were me with the problem and I needed someone to troubleshoot, I would take it to an old time local transmission shop that has been in business since Jesus walked the earth. I don't trust those national chain type outfits. Most of your general mechanics these days will farm out different types of jobs to other shops and just focus on drivability issues anyway.
