Good morning Sarah, it's nice to meet you. Is the check engine light on when it's running?

No
Automotive Expert
Ok, thank you. I would start with a simple tune up. A new [air filter](/topics-air-filter-toyota/) and a set of [spark plugs](/topics-spark-plug-toyota/) may help, especially if you don't know when the last time the plugs were changed. It is possible there is an issue with the mass airflow sensor or the front O2 sensor, but since the light is not on, I would really start with the basics. Please let me know what else I can do to help

Tune up was done already a month agoSpark plugs changed

Ok in this case I would then have the mass airflow checked and the front O2 sensor. Ether can fail and cause this type of issue and not turn on the check engine light.

Ok ty
