Default SES light is on

****. I took her for a small ride to get food today and driving down my street
I noticed she didnt feel right. Kind of hesitant. got on to a main street and stepped on it
a little and my SES light started flashing. now Im stopped at a light and it feels like it wants to stall. I believe im ideling around 800 now so I give it some gas
to rev her up. light changes and she is hesitating shaking .
My SES light is now ON. not blinking.
I only went about 2 miles to a store. when I drive her back home I dont feel the hesitation no more but the ses is on.

Jim, swing by an Advance and get the codes I had an EGR valve code that was haunting me until last week.

If you had onstar, they could do a remote vehicle diagnostics and they could tell you.

For some reason I thought so Jim... You didn't strike me as that type of guy. I don't pay for mine anymore either I let it go... Although I used the hands free calling thing once it was pretty cool I must admit the only thing I really liked about it. But that package was over 50 bucks a month. *I easily said h*ll no!* So I dropped it. I do like my lil antenna out of the back roof tho makes me think I am important or am rich. lol... AND I AM NOT!

Jim, as soon as you get the code I'll look it up in the FSM. Did it feel like misfire by any chance?
