Engine light on, cant accelerate

Asked by Aug 10, 2018 at 04:56 PM about the 2009 Saturn Aura

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My engine light came on while driving, and when I stepped on the gas after
that the car would barely accelerate, and only get up to 40 miles an hour,
with the RPM staying at 4 or above. And even at stops it stayed on 1 RPM.
Since it wouldn't accelerate I coasted back home.
Before this it hasn't really had any problems other than getting stuck for a
few seconds on a certain speed or RPM before jumping a bit and then
going back to normal. Nothing i was super concerned about.
I made it home and don't feel safe enough to drive it to a mechanic, I have a
friend willing to look at it but it may be a week til he gets around to it.
Any suggestion on what it might be or what to do in the meantime?
I am really hoping this isn't going to cost me an arm and a leg.
Thanks.
