I could be off, but would your brake pads need to be changed? I had really old ones and my car would creep to about thirty then slower and slower until it stalled. I changed the brake pads and now its fine. Idk what those have in common but it could be worth a try.

I'm in the process of trying to figure out the same thing. Mine feels like it's pulling a trailer until i get to 20-25 then it takes off like normal. I haven't had any luck yet, but i've got Mike from Hilbish Ford trying to help me figure it out. I asked him at least, He hasn't gotten back to me yet. So far i've tried changing the fuel filter, putting some injector cleaner in the tank, checking for vacuum leaks (which i really don't know how to do), and checking all the fuses in the engine bay.

Let me ask you something. Are you throwing a CEL, Is your car running rich, how's your fuel mileage? My currently is p0172 & p1130, yes, 17-18mpg. If your answers are similar, chances are we're in the same boat.

I'll let you know if i get mine fixed before you get yours. Also, i'd appreciate if you'd do the same for me.

when was the last time you changed your plugs and wires? sounds like the engine isnt firing right. your plugs might be fouled out. pull them out and check the gap, if they are screwed you will know it. but your problem sounds like plugs and wires
