Thanks for asking your question. I will try and help you out.
I would like to ask you a few questions first to better help me understand your situation. I hope that is OK.
When you say the engine swings slow, do you mean it turns over slow?
Also, does the yellow check engine light come on when the key is turned to the on position?
