OK, to be honest? no way fro anyone to say what the problem is to set light and why it is running litttle rough, What has happened is the computer detected a problem like say a misfire and it set the check engine light, The next thing that happens is the computer puts the car into what is called "limp mode" this means it will stay in one gear and you can not drive fast, The computer does that to shut some things down till you can have looked at and is a 911 mode to still allow a drive to a shop.It could be something very simple . The ONLY way to know where the problem is? the trouble codes need to be scanned. Parts stores will do this for free or any shop can, Yours is still under warranty so a shop will do the scan, It will say a trouble code number and that tells the shop where the problem is, Once they fix and or clear the trouble code? it will shift fine again. You? one can remove the battery cables for say 90 seconds, put them back on and many times this will clear the code and it will go back to running and shifting, The only problem with that si now the shop has no code to see where the problem wass when it set the light, Your ok to drive it but will not shift properly so loss of power like you know, Its enough to get to a shop to have looked at. Wish I knew what happened but till I have a trouble code? it is a guess, Hope this all makes sense
