and what you need to do is to tell us what year it is, at the least. as if it's 1996 and younger, go to any parts store and read engine error codes.
otherwise, sounds like simple maintenance issue. spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap. no telling without knowing how old your car is.

If the check engine light is on, first thing you should do is get the code(s) read
