No the ca wouldn't actually speed up when this occurred, although it would seem like it was in neutral and would just rev the motor. I work at a shop and I talked to a few of the guys and they said it could possibly be the clutch going out, and it is just free spinning when the problem happens which could potentially make the Rpms and speedo jump like that correct? I don't know how right they are?

Ps, no dash lights came on but I have noticed lately and I don't think this has anything to do with my current problem but when I'm driving through town and put it in neutral and start to slow down my idle rpms drop to about 6-700 and battery light comes on and the car will act like its going to die or it will just die. Oh and ps, I discovered at work that my CEL bulb is blown!!! ): I put a obd11 reader on it and I have a few codes. Cylinder one misfire , evap leak , bank 1 o2 sensor and this is an odd one, advanced variable camshaft timing??

Slipping clutch will not fool the speedo.

The speed sensor is in the transmission, the clutch is before the transmission, if the clutch is slipping than the transmission will not "speed up" with the motor RPMS, because it is no longer coupled tightly to the motor.

Slipping clutch is the same as pushing the clutch pedal down.

It sounds like you have several problems you need to address.
Yes, they probably are related to your other "engine don't run right" problems.

Okay so my fear of it being a clutch or throw out bearing or any of that is not possible? It's probably just a sensor like that VSS or TPS? Sound more likely?

Well I have now noticed when I have the issue that I can hear like rattling it sounds like a glass jar of change being shook up. That's the best way to describe it.
