What model Toyota? Later model cars have their engines controlled by an ECU which can cut out the engine when it senses problems such as low oil level, overheating etc. When ti ECU sense a problem it could cut the engine power to half )or less) of its full normal power to allow the vehicle to be driven at slow speed to the nearest service center.

1999 Pontiac Montana 3.4L DTC P0300 Engine light came on and started losing power and making a noise
