When I press down on the acceleration pedal; it doesn't speed-up; it remains at 15 to 20 psi.

Do you

Will the engine free rev in neutral, that is will it respond to throttle command?

You asked me if the engine would free rev in neutral; yes it does. But it won't move fast when I press on the gas pedal. What is the problem?

If a manual a slipping clutch, if auto, low trans oil, faulty torque converter or clutch pack problem, if auto this will have to be tested first hand by a qualified mechanic.
