Q: Car has issues accelerating.

asked by on

My car won't go past 15 mph it might jerk and go a little faster but not for long. When I was driving it just stopped accelerating I can push on the gas and it will barely go. It sounds the it's stuck in 3rd gear or something. But when I try to change gears from D to R it won't reverse and when I try to go from D to M1 or M2 it won't go. Hellpp
