just bought my 4runner used and it shudders or skips at 1500-2000rpm between 50-65mph. also a slight burning smell. when it stutters it seems like the rpm needle gets stuck at 1500 rpm for a second even while accelerating. check engine light came on recently. ?

    If the check engine light came on there will be codes stored in the engine module, retrieve those codes and post them and we can give you some more advice.
