Is the check engine light on?

The check engine light went on 2 seconds before I went into the store

If you can pull the code(s), that will help diagnose the issue. Auto part stores will lend you a scanner to get the codes if you can get the car there. They may be able to help you there or post the code(s) back here and we can help.
