I have a 2010 Nissan Versa, today while out and about the service light came on and suddenly the car started to shake, and vibrate badly like it was going to turn off. I was low on gas and thought that was the problem, though I was already headed to the gas station after I got the gas, it did it again. And it also rattles when accelerating and there’s a loss of power where I try to accelerate. I also checked the oil and I’m good on oil. What could possibly be the problem? I did my research and I think it's the motor mount, however, I also saw something about the spark plugs and fuel pump. Help?

Too little info. Can you go to an auto store and get them to read the engine codes? Most auto stores like advance auto auto zone, etc do this for free.

Really to take all the guesswork out, you need a code scanner to read what the trouble code is that is causing the check engine light. A common code is the P420 code which could be the O2 sensor or the catalytic converter. If you're over 100,000 miles and haven't done a tune up then it possible it's time for plugs and new coil packs. In which case the trouble code will tell you there is a misfire. But could a trouble code for the IAT out of range just be a dirty air filter and/or dirty MAF sensor. In almost any of these situations it couldn't hurt to change the air filter, clean the MAF, and run some Seafoam through your car.
