2011 Jk Sport engine problems. Anyone help?

I have 2011 JK Sport w/auto trans. It has 2,590 miles on it.Yesterday while joy riding around town with the my kids the engine started sputtering and rpm's started jumping acting like it was going to rev up only to fall back down and all most quit. If i restarted, which it would with no problem it would idle high and pull it self down the road at around 15mph without touching the gas pedal. Every time it would act up the Traction control light would come on and the engine light would come on. My local Jeep dealer told me that they had no ideas and told me to just drive it in. It will not drive on the hwy over 30mph. i am over an hour from any dealership. Anyone have any ideas of what may be going on. Thanks any info would be greatly appreciated.

Have owned;
1980- Cj 7
2005- Tj
2007- Unlimited 4 door

Also in the owners manual it refers to the throttle body when these two light are on. Gas fumes were also presesnt during this time of operation also. as if it was flooding out.

best piece of advice is tow it and have the stealership pick up the tab, it should be covered under warranty

Warranty is your friend! Tell the dealer service department that the Jeep can't be driven. If they won't pick it up, call Chrysler customer service and file a complaint. Your dealer will be there quick with hat in hand!
