Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So im hlfway home when i try to accellerate past 50 and realise i can't. I pull over, and try to get it home a few minutes later but now i can barely get past second gear. My abs light has been on for a while but hasnt caused any issues. Could this be the problem?

may be a bad throttle position senser-bad fuel filteror maf-mass air senser.

fuel pressure regulator stopped up replace and will clear up

sounds like your fuelpump in your gas tank is going bad i got a friend that said his did the same thing wouldnt get over 50 miles an hour its not pumping enough gas to get over 50 fuel ,pumps vary in price there any where from 100$ th 400 dollars and thats if you do the work yourself.

mine did the same thing its the fuel pump. replace that and go ahead and throw on a new fuel filter
