Hello. It seems like your vehicle is having performance related issues due to a fuel problem. A few things I would check are the fuel pressure regulator, the fuel lines, and the coolant temperature sensor.

An issue with any of those can cause the vehicle to produce the symptoms you are experiencing. Also, if the Check Engine Light is on, I would recommend having the trouble codes retrieved for further diagnoses. I’d recommend getting some help from a professional mechanic for this job. They will be able to diagnose your cars harsh driving symptoms firsthand and make the necessary repairs to get your car running smoothly again.
