Hello and thank you for using Just Answer
the code p0660 is for the Variable Inertial Charging System
this is a valve in the intake and can also cause the lean code (p0171) and the misfire #1 code (p0301)
it is possible you have a bad VICS Solenoid valve causing all 3 codes.
a diagnostic to test the valve will run around 100 dollars
let me know if you need more help
to test the valve you need a scan tool and a meter
you might be better off getting it done for the 100
but I will attach the full diagnostic procedure here for you
