The engine light has been coming on and off randomly. When it is off the car drives great when its on I find it does not speed up when accelerating, it revs high. The car also has like a jerking feeling like its going to stall, when I am on a flat road and it is jerking and I accelerate it gets a little worse and also when idling at traffic lights.

Hey KELLY,

It sounds like you need a tune up and change the spark plugs, can you check you scan for codes to see what they say?

Here is a couple links that will help
