I just purchased this car from a dealer. I was on my way home from a friends house tonight and all of a sudden my check engine light came on. Shortly after it cam on I realized I could not accelerate. If I was going downhill I did not have a problem, but when I tried going uphill, it would not pick up speed past 35mph and the turbo needle wouldn't move either. I just had the oil changed today and all the fluids checked but I can't tell you the last time it had a tune up. At one point I had my gas pedal to the floor with no acceleration and when I had to come to a stop at a red light it was kinda puttering. I made it home and let it rest for about and hour and then my husband just drove it to my in-laws to park it and he said he didn't have any issues at all. Can you please give me some insight as to what my problem may be or where I should start to try and fix it?
