My car did the same thing it was the converter on the exaust. My car would run bad on and off. Then I got reduced power light and check engine light. Clogged converter stops the flow.

Tow, if necessary, your car to a Saturn or GM specialist for diagnosis. the light indicates that the computer has detected a malfunction with the engine control and emission systems. There are data and trouble codes stored which can be accesssed using a scanner and would be valuable information for diagnosing your car. Here's a directory link for you:
