slipping?

My trans is old and was beat to hell by my mom before she gave me the car but I was wondering, as I accelerate it will stay at about 2.5k rpms and accelerate even when I floor it eventually the rpms will go higher, I know that the trans is on its way out but is this the torque converter or what because I read that the stock stall is around 1.5k or something close to that. Any ideas on what the problem could be? It accelerates slower also after I cleared the running too rich codes but would this have any affect on the shifting?

On the trans question, how many miles on it? my trans with 120K on it started slipping and to give the same effects you mention. Did you just clear the codes or did you fix the problem?

All Glory to God!
