Today I drove my car and when I hit gas after light turned green, the car started to hesitate like it was running out of gas, then car started slowing down and wheel got tight, then check engine light came on. I made it home, let car sit for 45 mins then attempted to restart car
Car started, no engine light on and wheel not tight anymore. Wondering what it could be
