Post Sluggish Start

Yesterday when I was leaving work I had some trouble getting my car to start. The engine was turning over (so I knew it wasn't an electrical issue) but I had to push on the gas pedal while turning my key to get it to start. I recently replaced my ignition coil, spark plugs and wires so I'm wondering if it has anything to do with that. Also, my "Check Gage" light comes on from time to time while driving around town. Can anybody diagnose this problem or had a similar experience? What did you do if so? Thanks.
