Question: My car isn't going faster than 25mph, please view details...

Well I'm up in Alaska, and didn't get it wintered first off. Haven't driven it until early November and when I did the speed slowly decreased, to the point of going 25 mph with the gas pedal floored. I'm hoping it could be something like a little ice in the gasline, but I don't know. I'm worried it's the transmission. I put some Iso-Heat in it when I filled her up today and drove it for about 2 miles after letting it warm up for about 40 minutes. Anybody have any suggestions?

It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
