Your car is probably going into limp mode which means it has serious problem. To find out more you will need to get the codes read. Good luck!

That's your Automatic Transaxle light, which means that you have a serious problem with your transaxle and should take the car to get it checked out, before it goes out completely.

I have found the issue. I took it to a transmission shop and had it scanned. It's the throttle body, and a speed sensor.
