1999 Lexus rx300. New knock sensors, harness,etc. when I start it,it knocks ,has no power,very sluggish.

Check the pressure in the fuel pump
Check the fuel filter for dirt
When there is weak fuel pressure, it generates this type of failure
Also check the compression on the engine cylinders

My 99 dodge caravan drove it today and it barely would go and was smoking what could it be

First you need to be sure if it is smoke or steam..Set parking brake ..,Get safety glasses .and safety mask for breathing..Is the smoke from the tailpipe or elsewhere ..,or is it smoking everywhere..?..Is it leaking anywhere.How many miles are on the van and what engine size..?..Make sure engine is cold for safety..Check coolant level...You can smell the coolant mix if it is steam...If it is smoke you can smell burning oil/fuel combination...If it is steam more than likely it is the head gasket and or possible cracked head or block in worse conditions..Some head gasket failures can leak outside of the engine .however it is rare...Check oil level and see if coolant/h20 mix is mixed with the oil...If it is it should show nasty color and or appear to be overfilled considering how long the failure has happened...If it is smoke it can be a few problems....valve seals..,clogged catalytic failure ..etc...Please send more info if possible And I will guide you through troubleshooting your system.....Thanks..

Engine power reduced, service traction

when you have the fault codes read to find the exact sensor failure or cause , have it fixed then reset the ecm as the ecm will reduce the performance(limp mode) for safety reasons

Cold outside, on interstate my Intrigue started acting sluggish. couldn't get to 70mph. was only going 50mph. Service engine soon light was flashing and kept flashing the whole rest of the drive even...

sounds like you have moisture in the gas tank. there's plenty on the market that will take moisture out of gas tanks. Home Depot, Menards, etc.

Your car has gone into a safety mode as you on board computer has detected a fault somewhere.Hence this is a protective mode in order to avoid damage to the engine etc..You will need a diagnostic device hooked up to the car in order to read or reset this error code.

My car was running beautifully, had a oil change and filters change, again drove beautifully for 3 days, then overnight, it starts great, but shakes between 5mph-25 mph, and is sluggish when i take off...

Have your fuel filter changed, your fuel filter may be at the end of it's life time and is dirty. The fuel filter should be replaced every 15,000 miles or once a year to ensure that the fuel system is running at 100%. Try that first and if there is an Auto Zone around your area, have the car scanned for the DTC codes. Auto Zone scan free of charge and can give you the recommended steps to addressing the issue that is causing your engine problem. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running 100% again soon.

Check gearbox light, car drives sluggish,heater cuts off.

You have a bad gearbox position sensor located on the transmission. When the transmission computer sees the fault in that sensor it goes into a protective mode in your car starts out in second gear that's why it is sluggish. This is a very common failure on that car. The heater issue is not related.
