CAR WONT GO OVER 20 MPH

1995 Ford Escort • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 137,000 miles

My 1995 ford escort will not go over 20 mph and wont shift into the next gear. This happend about 2 years ago but a mechanic cleaned some plugs and fixed some melted wires and worked for 2 years and now it is happenig again. What could cause it?

Lack of acceleration, chugging, hesitating********, bogging, misfiring etc. Could be caused by one of the following below

Oxygen sensor.
Catalytic converter.
Fuel injectors dirty/sticking.
Mass airflow sensor/Airflow meter.
Throttle position sensor.
Crankshaft position sensor
Knock sensor
Manifold absolute pressure sensor.
EGR Valve
Fuel pressure regulator leaking or defective fuel pump.
False air leakage.
Fuel contamination.
Foul/defective spark plugs.
Open spark plug wires.
Ignition coil/Coil packs defective.
Incorrect ignition timing.
Cap and rotor.

Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it
