    Possibily the car went into a limp mode whick can be caused by the transmission valve body. It could be something else as well. Only way to find outnfor sure the vehicle would need to be scanned for fault codes

    So I had the shop look at my car and they checked it out...I had my scheduled A service performed and they said I had a faulty battery and my ambient air temp sensor was not working correctly. So I will give it a week or two and see if this was infact the cause of my recent troubles
