Exceleration problem While driving my engine light comes on once in a while. When it's off the car runs perfect...when the engine light is on and I punch the gas on the highway it kicks back and the car starts vibrating... I can only excel slowly... almost like the gas is not getting to the engine. Also, some times at traffic lights the car stalls out and I have to try 3 or 4 times before the car will start again. Could this be a fuel problem?

2002 Hyundai Matrix transmission problem. While driving the engine check light comes on and I am unable to kickdown to overtake. Whenever, I try to drive from a complete stop, the car seem to be lazy. I discovered that if I switch off the car then start, then switch off a second time then start, the check light comes off. I am then able to drive and kickdown as usual until the engine check light comes back on. What can cause this problem and how can I fix it?
