My car is making a noise that sounds like a cricket. It just started idling funny and having a hard time taking off when stopped at a sign or light. My check engine light just came on an hour ago. Help

When the Check Engine light turns on there is at least one diagnostic fault code stored in the Engine Computer. Chrysler makes reading them very easy. Cycle the ignition switch from "off" to "run" three times within five seconds without cranking the engine, then leave it in "run". After a few seconds the code(s) will be shown in the odometer display. Holler back with those numbers.
