This will be a problem with a Engine Speed Sensor, which by having the ECM scanned will indicate the correct ESSCM to install.

When I shift to drive and give it some gas the rpm's just race like it's in neutral or park- I move it to N. let it return to idle rpm shift back to D. and it usually begins to operate correctly.

First check transmission oil level.
If the oil level is normal, it is possible either the transmission pump pressure is low, transmission solenoid may be bad, or clutches are worn. Have someone check to see if there are any diagnostic codes with an OBD code checker.

Transmission on my 2001 L200 has been acting up...

I think you should try changing the fuel filter by the sound of things. If your engine is starving for gas it can cause the transmission to do all sorts of things. If, once your car is running well, you still have transmission problems, you can try changing the transmission oil and filter, and the shift speed sensor.

No Engine Warning Light, but low engine power/shifting problems

well they dont have a timing belt they have a timing chain which is nice but i would take it to a mechanic with a ford scan tool to diagnose it its really hard to diagnose these newer vehicles over the net these days! it could be so many things from throttle position sensor to rev limiter issue!

Transmission when cold does not shift until 2800 rpm

Synthetic fluid is NOT recommended for your transmission. The best advice I can give you is to go and have the transmission completely flushed, and put the correct fluid, from Toyota, into the transmission. If you keep driving it with the synthetic fluid, you are going to damage the transmission beyond repair.
Also, get your money back from Sears.

I hope this helps you out. A FixYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

When I drive my Mazda 626 (97) in high way, at about 110 KM/Hour speed. Sometime the tachometer will suddenly go up and come down (e.g. go up to 4000 RPM or 5000 RPM from normal say 3000 RPM in one or two...

Does your Mazda have a standard trans (clutch), or automatic.
If it's automatic, the tranny might be slipping, and if it's a standard shift the clutch may be slipping. Does the actual driving speed (not engine rpm's) seem to stay the same when this happens? If you are still traveling at the same speed even though the engine speeds up, it's your tranny or clutch. I don't think the timing belt and tensioner have anything to do with this. countrycurt0
