How fast if up a steep hill? if your a DIYr then open the hood and check for vacuum hoses broken or disconnected and look at the throttle linkage carefully . if it's not electric throttle make sure it moves freely & the throttle is closed Tell me the results of these inspections or tow it to a shop but i would not drive it as you described.
