When I hit the gas the truck stutters acts like it has a lack of power the engine light is on
My car has 82000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
The stutter is most likely an engine misfire in one or more cylinders. The Check Engine Light is on to indicate a problem and should be scanned to see what the code is and diagnose it. If a cylinder misfire code is received, then that cylinder should be checked for a bad coil or spark plug. If you want to have the fault verified before making any repairs, a technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to inspect the Check Engine Light and perform any services needed.
