You're right to be worried. Slipping gears is one indication that your transmission is ready to fail. Ehow.com points out that gear slippage is a common indication of transmission issues.
"When a gear slips or fails to operate, the engine will lose power, or RPMs will surge, causing the engine to idle very high," ehow says. "Engine knocks, foul-smelling exhaust and engine operation after the car has been turned off are also indicators that a transmission may be on its way out."
