The engine check light would come on. then i could restart the car a few times and id be fine for a few minutes. then go back to the same problem. now my car isn't stuck and won't accerlate at all now. I hear a clicking noise, when i press the pedal it goes away and my car begins to shake. my rpms don't go up Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?
