Sounds like you have an overheating problem that caused the car to put itself into "Limp Mode". The computer is limiting speed to protect the engine from further damage. Limp mode can be caused by several things: cam, crank, or knock sensors; timing, etc. Another possible cause is the transmission itself or the torque converter.
