Thanks everyone, turns out it was time for an oil change and then computer had to be reset manually. For anyone needing to do this here is how. Turn key but not starting motor, push in on kill switch and then within 10 seconds pull out the kill switch 3 times...computer is now reset. What a huge relief it was not something major.
