2000 Nissan Sentra wont go over 30 MPH?

Recently my car has been stalling at stops. Completely shutting off. I went under the hood, everything looked fine. I had my brother look at the car and he fixed the stalling, but now the car won't go past 30 mph. I floor the pedal but nothing really happens. The engine doesn't rev up, it just slowly gets to 30 mph's and doesn't go any faster. What would cause this exactly?

that's what's called "safe mode". There's a critical issue somewhere causing the ECU to revert to it. Bad MAF? Bad sensor readings?

Because you posted here but aren't sure what it is, I'll suggest you take the car to a good dealer or a good mechanic (one that won't just plug in the code reader but actually CHECK the car)

only real motored toys left:

'07 Mazdaspeed3- injen CAI.
