Sounds like you are in limp mode. Get it to a shop or auto parts store and have the trouble codes read. The engine's computer goes into limp mode when it detects a problem that could be serious.


Should add to the above, going into limp mode doesn't always mean setting a code, some conditions might arise that don't set a code.
