So it’s been getting cold In Cali lately over night, I left my car sit for like two days this week earlier.
Day I go back to work I noticed that when I took off after warming my car up for a few min that when I was around 2rpm it felt like it didn’t wanna go past that and felt forced and made like a thththth noise
Even the engine light came on for quick seconds flashing but turned off on its own and when car was warmer later during the day it ran just fine
So just wondering if that’s normal? Car is all stock too

Not normal for sure. I guess we could say "good" news is the CEL came on so that means some sort of code was thrown. Go have that code pulled and that would be a good start to figuring out what is going on. Anytime the CEL comes on it stores a code so even if not still on they should be able to pull recent codes.

From my experience a flashing CEL means it is detecting a misfire. using a scanner to check it would be the next step like said before. There are different things that could cause this, but the CEL codes can help narrow it down or at least point to a specific cylinder.

Moisture in the atmosphere could have got to the coils and the wiring. Try spraying them with some WD40.
