Need Some Help!

I just bought a 2010 JK unlimited a mont ago and it has 1,400 miles on the odometer. I get in my jeep this morning to start it and it starts fine but the idle is not constant and the rpms are jumping 200 up and down. Then as I am driving anytime i give it gas it feels like a 4 stroke dirt bike that isnt warm. The check engine light flashed on. Could it be bad gas? I have no idea! Thanks for any help/advice in advance

Thank God you Jeep is fine. So, like daggo66 said, what kind of car is it and is it still under warranty? That way you can take your car to the dealer.

It's just impossible to edit fast enough to get away with calling your "Jeep" a CAR!!!
Only 14 minutes and you got it 4 times
Let this be a lesson for Everyone

It's not funny now that you fixed the post. Definitely take it in to the dealer. Something like that will mist likely have to be connected to the diagnostic computer to know anything for sure.
