Title:

not accelerating when pressing the gas

Text:

My car isn't accelerating when i press the gas from a complete stop i have to put it into another gear (its an automatic mind you) for the car to go and sometimes it doesn't  accelerate after that and the gas peddle is hard to push, and it also jerks when i'm in the 20-40 MPH range, the engine light is on as well . I have replaced the plugs and wires and it did not change the condition. What can i do to fix this issue??
