Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I go and start up my car and as I'm driving, the
engine light comes on, the screen on the odometer
says "Cruise Control Not Available", I cannot pass
more than 3000 RPM's and the car bucks
everytime I get to to 3000. As soon as I make 55
mph it turns off and when I slow down or come to
a stop for a moment, it comes on again. Please
help? and whats wrong and price to fix? My car has
a lot of problems and I want to get these fixed.

Since the engine light is on and you are experiencing these problems, I would say the car has gone into 'limp mode', that is to protect the engine. You would need to have the car scanned to pull the 4 digit OBDii codes to pinpoint your drivability problem. We'd be guessing at this point as to the cause, it can be a 100 different things. At this point we couldn't give you a price, depends on what the problem is.
