Unhappy Engine feels sluggish

I have a '12 RDX ShAWD Non-TECH w/93,XXX mi, Wifes driving to work 15min later VSA & Check engine light start lighting up, car gets sluggish & starts shaking, Just purchased spark plug & ignition coils... I guess my question whats the cause(s), my guess is i think a got a bad batch of gas... Any & all opinions will be greatly appreciative... Thanks

the check engine light is a clue...it's telling you what's wrong...get the car scanned via OBDII reader...local autozone will check it for free.
Once you know what's wrong with it, then you can properly fix it. ie; wouldnt install those plugs and ignition coils...just yet

p.s. Dont guess. the car tells you exactly what is wrong with it.

^then buy an OBDII reader.

as soon as we know the codes, then we can move on to a solution...without the codes....Your guess is as good as my guess...which is nothing. we have nothing
