Mechanic's Assistant: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?

Yes check engine light is on. It stalls at idle.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Toyota?

2010 Prius

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Prius yourself? What have you tried so far?

Checked oil level, which is fine. that's it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

120,000 miles, no problems until now.
