The car has been leaking coolant, and now the car will not accelerate over 15 miles/hr. It does change gears, so it can reverse and go forward; just not accelerate. Thank you.

Hi There, Your car may have gone into a "safe mode" or limp mode if the coolant level was detected to be below a minimum threshold by the computer. More importantly, if the coolant is leaking this will only get worse and should be looked at by a mechanic as soon as possible. I would recommend having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose and inspect your coolant leak.
