1984 Ford Tempo will not go faster than 25mph

The Tempo is a automatic and it seems not to get out of first gear. I was told to check the Trans Downshift Controle if so . What does it look like and where can i find it

Hi, sometimes a clogged catalytic converter can cause similar symptoms; You might want to disconnect it and see if that works. Also, believe it or not, I have seen air filters so badly clogged up with dirt or even water that will do the same thing.
