Anyone else experience this??

I got in my car this morning and put it in reverse and, I can't think of any other way to describe it, but the car seemed to slightly "bounce" or have a "jumping" affect. It's not a huge movement but slight. When I came to a stop it acted like it wanted to stall but didn't and when I accelerated, it had a hard time doing so and did that "bouncy" thing. The Service Engine Soon light came on. I got a quarter of a mile from home and turned around.

Anyone else experienced this?

Thanks!
