hello, thanks for posting

It sounds like a misfire, possibly a ignition coil/igniter failure, is it a V6 or 4 cylinder? When the check engine light is on the first thing I usually ask for is some diagnostic code information, do you happen to have a code reader or know someone that has one or can you rent one from an autoparts store, I assume the car is not drivable.

Approximately how long did the engine run bad before it came to this point?
