Engine light just came on. It seems when I step on the gas pedal the car hesitates almost starving for fuel it like bogs down

A lot of things can cause that problem with accel. Any chance of you getting that code retrieved from the computer so I can better diag the issue?

Some things to check could be:
fuel filter, air filter, clogged cat. Convertor, bad T.P.S, faulty E.G.R. Value, bad M.A.P. Sensor.

See if you can take a look at them, or get the code and let me know.
