When the engine is cold my car starts up fine, but with the check engine light on. But after the car has been running for about 15 minutes, the car cuts out anything above 2000 rpms, but runs fine before it warms up. Also after that 15 minutes, the car will not restart after turning off the ignition unless I pump the gas pedal, and even then is hard to start, but eventually will start, but the check engine light is on all the time. With all this information can anyone tell me what I need to look for?

Check engine light on
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.
