Customer Question

I have a 2009 Saturn Vue. I started the car this morning (6 degree weather) and started driving like normal. About 3 minutes into the drive, there was a clunk, the traction and stability light came on as well as the engine light and another engine light with a down arrow. The display told me the engine power was reduced. It felt like a cylinder wasn't firing right? The engine was running very rough. Any idea what I'm looking at here??
JA: Have you metered out the ignition system?
Customer: I don't know how to do that?
JA: Are you fixing your VUE yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No, trying to get a handle on where I need to take it for service
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Car was in a rear end accident recently. Just got it back from being serviced. Required a new exhaust ... and then a new 02 sensor. That was just replaced on Wednesday, but everything appeared normal until this morning.
