I tried to drive this morning and I almost didn't make it to my destination. Yesterday there was a burning smell, but I thought it might be dry leaves on the manifold or something like that. This morning it was losing power and didn't want to stay in an idle.

Throttle body issues are very common. It would require communicating with the computer and then manually going in that direction and diagnosing properly.
