The car runs well at normal driving speeds. After a stop there is sometimes a hesitation or stall before the normal acceleration begins. The Check Engine light is on. The shift indicator either flashes or stays constant in a red bar instead of the D for Drive being lit in red. The stall or hesitation is not consistant and is random.

    the trans display is saying there is a fault in the transmission. when a trans faults it goes into limp mode which can cause the stall and sluggishness. the check engine light may be on as a "mil" request saying check trans. either way the faults need to be read and evaluated by a tester and diagnostic technician. there are too many reasons to speculate what happened to your car without knowing the fault codes.
