My car won't accelerate?

I started my car up this morning and it was making like a chugging noise. I backed down my driveway, started going down the road when my car wouldn't go over like 40 mph at best. The RPMs would go as high as I wanted them to but the actual mph wouldn't go over 40. What is wrong with my car and does anyone know how much it would take to fix it?


It's a 1999 Ford Taurus, and no the check engine light is not on.
