SOURCE: engine code p0115
The Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor is located in the coolant passage of the cylinder head. The ECT sensor is a variable resistor whose resistance changes as the temperature of the engine coolant flowing past the sensor changes. When coolant temperature is low, sensor resistance is high; when coolant temperature is high, sensor resistance is low. The Engine Control Module (ECM) checks ECT sensor voltage and uses the information to adjust fuel injector pulse width and ignition timing. When the temperature sensed is very cold, the ECM enriches the fuel mixture and advances ignition timing. As coolant temperature rises, the ECM reduces the amount of enrichment and timing advance. P0115 is set when the ECM doesn't see this resistance (usually an open circuit) which usually means the sensor is burned out when there's nothing wrong with wiring and connections between the sensor & the ECM.

P0115 - Engine Coolant Temp Sensr - open/short
P1159 - Variable Intake Motor Malfunction
P1191/P1193 Limp Home Valve - Low RPM
First, clean the throttle body and check for anything which might obstruct AIR FLOW to it.
The P1159 is the Variable Intake Motor Malfunction. this motor is either 'OPEN'... or 'CLOSED' position. It is located on/in the intake manifold (plenum) and is only opened when cruising... it is closed at idle. If it sticks 'OPEN' is can cause drivability issues.
