Change plugs, wires, and fuel filter. Get a cold air intake or at least a k&n air filter.
Clean the throttle positions sensor. Check for any vacuum leaks. After every sensor that you replace you have to reset the computer or the code will remain. Even after a reset, it can take up to 20 starts for the vehicle to relearn itself.

A symbol that is the malfunction indicator light went on. What is the problem?

Laura, A few places like autozone will scan why the light is on for no charge. Engine light can come on for something as simple as a loose gas cap to something worse as a faulty catalytic converter. Take vehicle into a good shop, have scanned for trouble codes, diagnosed and an estimate for repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

My 2001 chrysler town and country bogs out when I accelorate

This can be cause by many things... (Mainly by a faulty EGR valve) or bad exhaust. If you haven't found a fix yet... Are you able to stop by an Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts? If so, ask them to place a code reader onto your OBD reader. Let us know if there is a code, or if you need more help.

I look forward to helping you out

If your torque converter is starting to come apart it could cause severe damage to the rest of the transmission. If it is affordable I would try a second opinion though.
