While going through a drive thru restaurant, the car shuddered and then the "wrench" light came on in the dash warning area. Have very little acceleration and top speed of about 15 mph.
Do you
have the same problem?

If the yellow "wrench" light stays on while the engine is running, you are in whats called the "limp home" mode. There is something wrong with the engine management system, and the engine runs, but with minimal performance (read "no power"). It's designed to get you out of traffic and home (or to the nearest repair center).
