I have a 2005 gmc envoy xl the rpm's are real low and it wont go over 15 miles per hour

Could be catalytic converters clogged. Remove the pre O2 sensors, or loosen the exhaust at the manifold. If it goes faster, replace the cats. Have the codes read.

97 Ford F1 54.6 V-8 starts missing at 60 miles an hour will not go any faster

Go to almost any auto parts store, and have them run a diagnostics on it. They all do it for free these days. Could need one of the throttle body sensors, ie ~ MAF, AAF, Vacume Idle sensor, etc. Other than that there are the tried and true problems, spark plug electrodes worn completely down, replace plugs. Fuel filter clogged and never been changed. Plugged catalytic convertor.

Car wont pass 40 miles per hour

If the check engine light does not come on, runs ok at low engine load and low speeds, but falls on its face under heavy load and faster road speeds, I would have to say that the fuel filter is the most common culprit of your problem. Generally, it needs to be replaced at least every 30,000 miles, but that is just a rule of thumb. They can be clogged at any mileage, causing fuel flow to be restricted to the engine.

Loses pressure when driving forward and backwards. It won't go any faster than 25 miles per hour

Sounds your catatylic converter is clogged.You will need to have the exhuast pressure tested.Or the next time you drive it for a little while stop and look under at the converter to see if its cherry red.Also put your hand behind tail pipe and feel how much pressure is coming out at idle.

You most likely have an injector not pulsing or is restricted,try some lucas fuel treatment and see if it will clear it up,one bottle of lucas,and the least amount of fuel ,this will make it clean faster and better,you should see results in one mile or two,if it does not help,injector replacement might be the only solution.
