EML, DSC, Engine Light is on while I drive,, please help

hey guys I was driving fairly slow like 30-40miles.

Suddenly EML, DSC, engine light pop up and my car doesn't accelerate.

Even I gased to the end rpm doesn't go above 3k and seems like misfire alot.

I turned off my car and restart then my car becomes fine.

This heppened yesterday (first time) and today as well.

That's your car going into limp mode..its pretty much a safe mode to prevent you from damaging anything.

you should take your car in for service and have them check it over and read the logged codes from the ECU.

If you are able to drive over, I could spare a few minutes to scan the car and tell you what errors ar showing up. I'll have more time on the weekend but I realise you may want to take it in for service before then.
