Greetings Sir or Madam and welcome to JA! I will do my very best to assist you with your problem.

Is or does the check engine light come on when it is running?

yes it stays on

Ia m going to say that it is very likely the cam or crank sensor. You should take the car to a parts store and have them read the codes. Most will do this for you at no charge. It will likely point to the specific sensor that is the problem.

As a footnote,my sister drives this exact same car and I had to put a crank sensor in it to resolve the same type of issue.
