1990 Buick Dashboard Display/Service Engine Question

this morning i was driving and as i was driving, the check engine light flicked on, then off almost imediately... then at the same time a light right above the gas guage flicked as well, so fast i couldnt
tell what it was... I had more then 1/2 a tank of gas at the time.
Anyway... about 2 hours later, i was accelerating to highway speed and the car bucked, and jerked before kicking into speed... the service engine light came on and stayed on.... until i shut the car off when i started it back up, the light was off....
the car had no problem reaching highway speed after that......
my questions are:
1) what is the light above the gas guage, i couldnt find it in the manual. I had more then 1/2 a tank of gas at the time.
2) any idea what the buck was?

When you turn the key to the "run" position, all the dash lights should light up for a second or two. Unless the bulb burned out as it came on.

not all the lights come on, a few stay off, the one above the gas gauge is one of them.

Try shinging a flashlight in the area where the light is, maybe you'll see the outline.
