325is problems need help!

hey, today was a bad day for me and my car, i just noticed that on the dash a symbol came up and i would check the owners manual.. if i had one. the symbol looks like a gear with an exclamation mark in it and im not sure what it means. also today i started my car and it was fine yesterday but this morning when i started it the engine it turned over but once the rpm meter goes down it turns off. if i give it gas, the engine will stay on but once i stop the engine will turn off. can someone help me out!!!! Thanks
