my 1998 c230 will start but sputters and turns off.

My check engine light came on a week ago and my car started sputtering. When my car is idle it feels like it wants to cut off. Then I was driving on the freeway and I could not accelerate and the car cut off and would not come on. After sitting a while my car started then a few seconds later turned off. What could it possibly be?
