2002 325i will only go 15mph

I am new to the e46 forums; I did an extensive search but could not find anything on this topic.

I am looking to buy a used 2002 325i w/ MT. The guy that is selling it said that BMW said the car needs a new motor. The car will start up and but will only go 15mph.

Does anyone have any idea what my be wrong with the car? I am suspecting a blown head gasket but I have never heard of a blown head gasket limiting a car to 15 mph.

Thanks for any feed back.
