Hello! My check engine light came on today when I started up the car and the dashboard lights were flickering and eventually went out completely. When I tried to accelerate, the car had very little acceleration. The RMP went up to 4 when I accelerated to 15mph.I just had work done on the car a couple days ago and paid over 1,000 ; (

Is it a stick or automatic, what work did you have done and what is the code?

Just to add to this one what was done for a 1000?Also does it start and run now?Sounds kind like the alternator stopped charging?

Hi! It's an automatic. I had some break work done and there was a leak in the gas tank. It starts and runs, but when starting it feels as if it has a weak battery and not much power.

For the gas leak most likely they replaced your fuel pump module I have replaced a ton of them because the nipples where the lines come off crack and leak. As far as your current issue I would start by have the battery and alternator tested. Do you have a multimeter to do. Some testing?
