you probably had one of the diodes in the alternator burn out...go to auto parts store and have them test the charging system or use a multimeter if you have one, normal, engine running voltage should be around 14 volts, if below 12.6 the alt. is not charging and needs replacing. Enjoy

Sound like a possible leak or you have a bad injector. You will not be able to lokk under the car for any leaks due the fuel will evaporate, you will need to start the car and look at the fuel rail while it's running. If it is not that check your fuel filters. If your lines do not have addaquate fuel pressue due to a leak or a dirty filter, it could cause those symptoms...

You don't have a simple problem. Engine light has to be read by a scanner (OBDII) available at autoparts store. Or take to mechanic. After you get code you'll have to be a mechanic to fix problems. Burns lots of gas can be many different causes. Miss in motor, same. Please take to professional if this is beyond your knowledge. Good luck!
