get a cheap OBD-II scanner and read the codes....one could guess that the VSS vehicle speed sensor has gotten unplugged...perhaps an ice mound that you crossed may have pulled the plug....the speedometer still work?....doesn't matter...put it on a lift and see what may have come unplugged....both vacuum and electrical connectors AND wiring....what else can we do here but inspect the damage~?

you might be able to talk the oil change buddies to let you examine the underside of the car for damage...when you have the oil change done...if they are nice people they will let you~

The severity of the pothole may have triggered a misfire or something. Go to an Autozone and have it read for free, have them clear and reset the code and see if it comes back.

This happened to my car yesterday. I have the same kind of car as u. Same year everything. Get a new oil change. It has something to do with they gave u the wrong oil last time or they gave u to much and it flooded it.
