Question: CAR WONT START AND ENGINE LIGHT IS ON

a couple of months ago i rotated my tires myself and the car wouldnt start afterwards without a jump, but once it was jumped it started until a couple of weeks ago it started dying again. and the last time i drove it the engine light came on and when i would put it in reverse or drive it had a boggling start like it was low on gas or something and there is gas in it.
