trouble accelerating

to start off I have 05 and 06 diesel smart cars this morning both cars when put into gear hesitated and would not move after a couple min they would rev up enough to move but would not go over 3k rpm speed was limited to approx. 100kmh. wondering if the weather has anything to do with this it has been around the freezing point above in the day time and below at night snowing and raining off and on for a week now. any ideas what the problem could be? or where to start looking for problems
