Press gas all the way to the floor but very slow to accelerate past 20 mph but past that pick up speed. Check engine light is on. Also when accelerating it feels like there is no gas going to engine and the engine is not running at a high RPM

    TCS light is most likely on , by default , due to the check engine light.
