If the clock spring is bad would that cause the car not to accelerate?
Do you

Normally not. This is just to keep connection between the airbag, steering wheel controls, and horn to the rest of the electrical system. If you have an acceleration issue we need the detail on when this happens or if it goes away at certain speeds. Also, does it do this all the time? We need to find out if there are codes also.

It sounds like the car maybe in limp mode due to a dirty throttle actuator. here is a guide to help fix it:
