the lite stays on for at least ten minutes or more but does go out. when the lite comes on the car surges and gets more power. but when the lite goes out the car runs bad

OK...You will need to have the engine management computer scanned for fault codes to determine the cause of the problem...this code(s) will tell you the component or system that is faulty and provide necessary information to repair it...cost should be less than $100 for diagnosis...jeffrey590
