Nebulas do not disable engines unfortunately. Other systems can be disabled with the tag lines in the odfs.

If you do not have the odfs, download them from this site. Copy the mnebula#.odf into the addon folder.

Change the 1s and 0s in the following lines to produce the desired combination of effects (taken from the cerulean nebula odf):

disableWeapons = 1
disableShields = 1
disableSensors = 0
disableCrew = 0
disableCloak = 1

damageValue = 0

hideContents = 1

Speed effects, taken from mutara nebula (mnebula3.odf):

craft_speed_coefficient = 0.6
craft_speed_limit = -1

Written as a comment above those lines is "How do we slow down ships? (coefficient is a multiple, speed limit is a cap; set speed limit to -1 to have an unlimited speed limit)"

You could even make a "trap" nebula that slowed ships to a halt :twisted:
