Hi

Is there a check engine light on the dash?

is it only under acceleration?

Does the vehicle feel like it wants to stall when coming to a stop?

There was a restricted performance code , I don't remember, it just feels like it can't accelerate properly. Ummm no, it just doesn't want to go fast... but It's pretty scary because someone could rear end me going around a corner because it has no pick up
