Yesterday I was driving along just fine and then I noticed that the service engine soon light came on, but the car was running fine. When I got home I turned the car off and it did not restart. The 2nd attempt it started fine, but as I was backing down the driveway it died and did not want to restart again. I eventually got it running but it was very sluggish until I hit higher RPM's.

First thought was gas cap, but I only had a 1/4 of a tank left so I know the cap was fine or the light would have come on days ago.

Anyway, does anyone think its something that I'm doing? The car is still under warranty but its too late to take the car in for service this weekend.

Thanks for everyone's time.
