    Have it scan tested, sounds like the transmission is not shifting due to inop. speedometer. Needs to be looked at right away!

    A friend of mine replaced my speed sensor and that wasn't the cause. He thinks it might be a cluster sensor but wasn't sure if that could be the culprit for to being able to acceleate.

    Did both problems start at the same time?

    Yes. I remember because I was at a stop sign.

    And i meant that he wasn't sure if it was the culprit for no acceleration.

    Update: The problem turned out to be corroded wiring.
