    check oil level. any spotting under car? splatter in engine compartment possible broken seal.
    have alternator tested, possibly failing.
    possible fuel issue. may need to have fuel pump looked at.
    bring it to a shop and have diagnostic run to find all issues you should be aware of.

    not framiliar with that area. i would figure that the pep boys shop would have a diagnostic system they could run on your car. they really could not give you much info. till they have chance to inspect the car. i do know that pep boys has a strong reputation for service. is the car under warranty? you may try running the VIN# to see if any recalls related to break down. that is pretty low mileage to have these type of issues. sry i couldn't help any further.
