I would run the codes anyway to see what comes up and I wanted to ask if the speedometer seems to be working okay? If not, I would replace the VSS (vehicle speed sensor, also you should check the transmission fluid and change it if it has never been done. Also, if no codes are found you may have a partially clogged catalytic converter.

I have instructions and the location of the sensor for you in the images below to help us fix the problem. Check out the images (below). Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.
