A check engine light should be on. Have the codes read at AutoZone or Advanced Auto Parts.

Yes the engine light is on. I had a tune up about 2 months ago and pep boys fix the car and the light went out but now it is back on

i will take car to auto zone or advance auto parts. Thank you

I'm not 100% on this but recently my car acted similar to what you're describing I had the codes checked immediately my engine light was only flickering on & off. The car had almost zero power while high running rpms like 6,000 & only getting to 10mph. It was shaking horribly the power would kick in on & off too the code read it was "misfiring from the coil packs that go to the spark plugs" luckily I took it to a shop & didn't just have my boyfriend do a tune up because it was my engine computer system that was messed up in turn causing the coil packs to run non stop where they burned up. This is apparently a common problem with this car, if you only replace the packs & plugs it'll probably happen again. A costly problem to fix but I'm hoping it doesn't happen again with the new computer installed. Hope this is helpful for someone better late than never! Good luck
