When in drive, my car strains alot and I have to rev it alot to even go over a little bump but when in reverse, it works perfect. What can be causing this?

The engine check light is on and well the car was parked up for a year. Its a 4 cyclinder 2.4L engine. Do you think its something wrong with the transmission?

Have the computer scanned for code/s-you have a problem within the engine management system that caused the CEL to turn on-This is your starting point of diagnosis,finding out what's going on.
