I have a 95 Honda Accord I recently drove through a flooded area the car will start but it won't go over 20 miles per hour without cutting off can you help me please

My car has 304000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

When something like this occurs you’ll need to open and clean out the air cleaner housing and replace the filter. Also, check the inlet tube for any restrictions. You may have managed to damage the mass airflow sensor.
