The coolant leak could be a blown head gasket. And the not going over 30 MPH could be from the catalytic converter being clogged. Do a compression test for the head gasket, and remove the O2 sensor from the exhaust and drive with the exhaust leaking out the hole. If the lower back pressure allows the car to go over 30 MPH then you know the cat. is clogged.

Check the idle air bypass valve see if dirty, cleanable unit. you check the working of valve by powering the unit with 12 volts. check map sensor too.

Sounds like your TPS (throttle position sensor), or MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor has gone caflooey.
Check your car's OBD-II computer code(s), by going to Meineke Muffler, or PepBoys/Advance Auto
