 Description of the problemI drove to toyota arlington for tire rotation on 2/4/21 and the car was running fine. Odometer was 44091 miles. After leaving the dealership, i drove about a mile then the engine lost power. The car could only go about 5 mph. The car jerk up and down as if i drove on the rail road tracks. The check engine light, trac off and red steering wheel symbol lit up but not flashing. I went back to the dealer right away. I turned the car off, the attendant turned it back on. The check engine, track off and steering symbols were off. The code was not saved, so on 2/8/21 the independent shop could not duplicate the problem (44132 miles). On 2/12/21 the same symptoms came back at 44175 miles. This time the check engine light flashing, track off light and steering wheel symbols came on but not flashing. My wife turned the car off, waited for a few minutes then turned it on. The check engine light was off but the trac off light remained on. In the past, after i turned the car off and turned it on one click, the symbols were on, and when the ignition turned on, the symbols were off. This is a safety issue. The car also smell like a burning tire. We were driving about 35 mph on lane number 1 (next to yellow lines median) on a county 4 lanes highway. The car slowed down to about 5 mph, jerk up and down and the car vibrates and it happened twice in a week. The car is only 4. 5 years old and only 44175 miles. The second independent shop read the code as p0301, misfired. He suggested to bring the car to the dealer for toyota to fix it under powertrain warranty. No repair has been done yet.
