It didn't do this on the test drive?
How many miles on the car?
If it's over 60,000 miles it might need spark plugs and get the valve lash checked.
Try putting a bottle of Chevron Techron fuel injection cleaner in the gas tank.
Get a compression test done on the engine.

Am I right that valve lash probably not a factor in an engine with hydraulic valve lifters?

The 1zz-fe and 2zz-ge engines don't have hydraulic valve lifters.

It is probably a sensor, not plugs or valve lashing. The plugs are platinum tipped and go 100k. If it were the plug module, it would just stop working.
I hope you were able to get this fixed.
