Why did you replace the"speed sensor" and what are you referencing when you say speed sensor?

The wheel speed sensor, your car has one on each of the front wheels and probably one on each of rear wheels. They have absolutely nothing to do with the cars ability to go forward. They are for ABS, traction control, and sometimes your speedometer. Could be a clogged catalytic converter, could be something in your transmission slipping, what is your engine going while trying to accelerate? See the rpms high or normal, dis the engine shake, does it sputter?
