FORD ESCORT GAS PROBLEM

2003 Ford Escort • 120,000 miles

Well my problem is my vehicle isn't going faster than 25mph when floored. Let me start you off with telling you I'm from Alaska and it isn't winterized, I just didn't use it at all during the winter months. Last time when I used it, the speed kept declining as I was driving home (250 miles north of Fairbanks) and I was very low on gas. I think possibly there may be ice in the gasline? Either way, I put some Iso-Heat in then filled her up. I started it up today for the first time since November (because it was over 20*F out), and took it on the road and still wouldn't go above 25 mph. The transmission doesn't feel wicked healthy but I'm hoping it could be something else. Any suggestions?

Scan for codes and check fuel pressure first
