Have a mechanic take a look at your throttle position sensor and engine idle sensor. Make him manually adjust them as opposed to just putting in new ones. It may require that you have to have a higher idle than normal. Your underlying cause is going to be that I am sure you have a lot of miles on your engine.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
It is safe to drive and I assume that you are on limp mode. This is to restrict the speed to avoid further damage to the engine. You can be facing some sensor issues like the MAF (mass air flow) sensor or TPS (throttle position sensor). If one of these sensor is faulty the car tends to run sluggish, run rough or may even result to stalling.
Have the sensors replaced and observe how it goes. This can fix the issue.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Yes its possible that fuel pressure is getting low or fuel filter is getting clogged or the O2 sensors are getting hot, O2 sensors when get weak, they get hot and loose communication with cars computer and due to that car stops controlling fuel and this can be problem.Also there are other possibilities like, faulty or dirty, IAC valve or dirty throttle body.Getting all this possibilities inspected, checked will point towards the cause of problem.--------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
