Q: Won't go over 35

asked by on

Car won't go over 35

My car has 6100 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The throttle is electronically controlled by the computer and can be limited when the computer is sensing a major failure in the powertrain of the vehicle. You must have noticed your check engine light is on and need to have the system scanned to get the codes from the computer so they can be diagnosed and repaired then cleared and your power will come back.
