CAN'T GET THE SPEED UP.

1995 Ford Probe

Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Ford Probe 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 189000 miles

When I get up to about 30 mph my car starts to stall. Then in 2nd it gets to 45mph ect. I only can get the vehicle up to 60 mph. The car has been sitting up for about a year due to this issue and before that it sat up for about six months.

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.
