Do you often run your gas tank to near empty?
This sounds like it may be as simple as cleaning the water or gunk out of the gas tank which is what I always do 1st because it's easy and inexpensive.
If your fuel is contaminated with gunk, grime, water and/or bottom junk like rust this will cause stalling and rough riding!
Try spraying a can of starter fluid in the air intake and see if it runs! If it does, it's most likely bad fuel or clogged injectors so....
Fill the tank with High Test, Add some dry gas and a good fuel system cleaner or 2 or 3 and this should dissolve all the gunk and clean the injectors! Read & follow the cans' instruction carefully.
If this cures the problem never let your gas tank get below 1/4 and especially never run it to empty as this is when the gunk and/or water will enter the system!
Hope this helps!

You need to have the transmission serviced. The wrench indicates that the fluid in your transmission is out of spec or you have an out of spec pressure condition.

If the check engine light stays on when your engine is running, your onboard computer has detected a fault in your emissions system. You need to have it hooked up to a code detector to find out what the problem is. If you are near an Autozone or Advance auto parts store they will usually do that for free. Here is where your search begins. Most of the time the code for "engine lean" will show up. That means you are getting too much air into the intake manifold. Excess air gets in through vacuum tube leaks, intake gasket leaks, faulty EGR, and PVC valves and sometimes valve stem seals, There are also a variety of other codes that may indicate faulty oxygen sensors, catalytic converter, fuel evaporative system. It is too expensive to just start changing parts and hoping you get it the first. It is important to get the codes that are stored in your onboard computer first.
