    Your description of the problem is not to clear. From what you describe it may be a freewheel issue. Or this could be as simple as a gear adjustment. More detail would be helpful.

    The answer would have to include a complete explanation of how to adjust a rear derailleur and maybe how to replace an entire cassette depending on what is going on, which isn't clear. Take it to a competent mechanic or buy a good book on bicycle repair and learn it all yourself because the question, in my humble opinion, can't be answered in any reasonable manner in a forum.
