I left the carwash and my 325I stopped, weird light came ...

I was leaving the carwash, and the minute I started my car, the RPM needle started bouncing around like crazy. As I pulled into the street, there was a weird light that was a circle with little teeth (like a gear or something) with an exclamation mark inside. I pulled over and turned off the car. I started the car a moment later, and the light disappeared, but the car sounded like it was running out of gas despite having plenty. I pulled back onto the street, and then despite me pushing the gas petal, the car stopped moving. Every time I would turn off the car and restart it, I was able to drive a little further and made it home, but now I don't know what to do. I am supposed to work tonight, but don't want to have another breakdown on the freeway. I'm not sure if water got into something at the car wash (they covered the area between my windshield and engine pretty well), or what happened. All I know is that this light is weird, the car keeps stopping, and it seems like it either isn't getting gas or shifting. Help! :)  (May 5, 2009 | post #1)
