Car wouldn't accelerate past 45 on highway?

Asked by Nov 09, 2016 at 11:18 PM about the 2000 Chevrolet Blazer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving down the highway at 70 mph with cruise control on.  Suddenly I looked down and noticed I was only going 60 so I put my foot on the pedal to speed up.  Sped back up to 70 and put the cruise control on again thinking it was a weird glitch.  This time I noticed not only did my car stop accelerating but I couldn't get it to go past 45 mph.  There were no strange noises that I could hear.  The pedal felt like it had resistance when I pushed it down. Turned car off after getting off highway and finding a parking lot.  Let it sit for a few minutes.  When I turned it on to drive home (after consulting with someone else first) it seemed to drive fine, only slowing down to 60 once and I was able to get the speed back up to 70 (I did not drive with cruise control).
