Question: what my car doesnt go over 30

My car will not go over 30mph. It starts and idles like a champ but once the car is in motion and your giving it gas you get to 30 the car doesnt go but the car still accelrates. If you floor it the car will finally jerk and go. but not is takes a lot for that to happen. Another thing the wire on the under belly of the car that connect to the transmisson where burning could that be the problem? Things I have already done is check the transmission fluid its fine and not burnt. I have replaced the cats and the tranmission line connector.Not sure where to go from here I need some professional opinion. thanks for the help!!!
