Why would your car not accelerate beyond 20 miles an hour even when you step on the gas in a manual transmission?

Could be a plugged catalytic converter, bad air or fuel filter,

or a weak fuel pump

Sounds like your clutch is worn out. Listen to the car and see

if the engine revs up when you do this. If so, your clutch is

slipping and you need a new one.

it also could be your cap and rotor going out if you are gunna

replace these might as well spend a few extra bucks on plugs and


Try shifting into 2nd.
