Q: Why won't my 2013 Ford Fusion accelerate past 5 mph

My car is starting but won't accelerate past 5 miles

My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. This can be caused by a number of different things. It could be because the vehicle is in limp mode or because there is an issue with a sensor or the throttle body. I would usually scan the computer for codes first to see if anything comes up. If there are no codes then I check the sensor readings to make sure that they are all reading correctly. At that point if everything looks fine then I check the fuel pressure and do a compression test to see if there are other issues.
