Have you ever replaced the timing belt?? If not the problem is likely to be a loose worn out timing belt. A floppy belt will play havoc with the sensor signals and trigger a check engine light and a camshaft sensor code.

1999 Nissan sentra wont accelerate/

Those are not valid codes, recheck them. Please check the fuel pressure under a load like accelerating, also check for excessive exhaust flow back pressure due to a plugged catalytic converter.. Also try unplugging the MAF sensor, if it is defective the engine will run better (almost normal with slight hesitation) but the check engine light will come on.

Hi, I suggest you take the vehicle to a Ford agent, car needs diagnostic tuning to check errors and cancel them. This may be your safest choice in terms of protection of the vehicle operation.

My dodge 2003 neon just had transmission replaced it still has a slight jerk a little hesitation on accelerating and the engine light is on what could that be?

Usually a scanner to read the engine fault code could lead to the correct diagnosis and repair. But if this transmission was recently repaired bring it back and tell them to do their job.

Sport mode shift light flashing?

The s light blinking means you have an active code in you tcu or transmission control unit. there is a juumper wire behind the passenger side kick panel and if you use a paper clip or small wire to connect both terminals in the connector you can read the engine and transmission code out on the dash. Once the jumper wire is connected turn the key to the on position engine off and count how many times the s light blinks. Thats the number of your code. I would read the codes out first before doing anything else.

More acceleration

The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type. Also engine mechanical problems ca cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms

Speedometer went crazy, Engine signal, kick after full brake stop

he told you to take it to a transmission specialist because that is where those sensors are located. The speed sensor is located in the transmission. It reads the speed by counting the number of teeth on a relucter wheel. (thats the simple explanation).
I sounds to me like there might be some debri in the transmission that could be affecting the reading.
The engine computer uses that information to control the engine and transmission. Without that information the transmission could go into limp home mode and or have erratic shiffting plus other problems.
I would really suggest you get it in for a test and evaluation asap. I do not consider this vehicle to be reliable or safe because the transmission could lockup and or otherwise fail.
As a side note, these minivans are notorious for having failing transmissions and most transmission shops find that the majority of their work is on this minivans. One of the reasons I have just kept my full size van.

Slight lopihg when taking off think it needs axle shaft adj

If you mean that the vehicle shakes under acceleration as if the whole drivetrain is rocking back and forth then you may be on spot with the axle shaft causing the issue. When an inner cv axle joint becomes damaged it can cause this. I am afraid there is no adjustment for the shaft/joint. It must be replaced. Be sure to inspect engine and transmission mounts as they are a common cause of the axle shaft failure. When the mounts wear or the rubber breaks/disintegrates it allows one side of the engine to sag causing the inner joint to bind and break internally. I have found that most often it is the transmission mount that causes the problem, but have seen engine mounts do it too.

Throttle position sensor may need to be replaced or checked. Any codes? Check engine light on? As the 1-2 shift, the detent aka kick down cable may be out of adjustment.This cable runs from the throttle body into the transmission. It has a button on the cable near the throttle body on cable housing. Push it in and this will loosen the cable. With car off, mash the accelerator all the way down and this should reset it.

Pontiac Montana has computer codes

Most GM it takes about 100 start cycle to clear any DTC codes that do not reoccur. As for the lack of power when accelerating could be a dirty fuel filter and needs to be changed.
As for the EGR Valve code it may be getting carboned up and need to be replaced or cleaned soon with carb cleaner. First try changing the fuel filter for your lack of power.
If you are ever going to have you Montana Rescanned and don't mind spending a few extra dollars, Have a Dirve Cycle DTC test done.
Good luck and hope this helps. Note: The program on the transmission on the Montana thanks to GM and there wisdom was made to slip when the transmission is cold to warm up the drivetrain quicker, which premature failure is common around 150,000 KM or 100,000 Miles just after the warranty. Regular transmission fluid and filter change will help exten the life of the transmission on the Montana.
