The check engine light is on and the car runs bad.  I have taken it to a couple guys to help me identify the problem but no luck. I have almost given up. The car runs but runs poorly. Could you give me some direction.  Thanks

Stop into your local auto parts store and ask them to read your trouble codes. If your vehicle is 1996 or newer they may be able to help you identify what the problem is or at least give you an idea of where to start looking.
