I bought a car at a auction so i was getting on the freeway and it wouldn't accelerate

My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi there. This sounds like the gas pedal position sensor or the throttle body position sensor is not working properly. You can try manually resetting the gas pedal position sensor. To do this, perform the following:
Now you can start the car and go for a test drive. If the symptoms are the same, then I recommend replacing the throttle pedal position sensor and performing another test. If you need further assistance with your car not accelerating past 50 mph, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
