    I think you need to take it in to a shop that can run a diagnostics to see what the code is and let you know what it is and how to go about getting it fixed. and I dont think you should drive it like that

    sounds like it could be a water problem.... try holding the pedal to the floor, and then hitting the starter for a bit, the car wont start, but it will let the valves open and close to relieve the cylinders of any excess fluids. let us know what you find
