There is either a high or low circuit problem with the motor. The ecm, or called the computor, moniters the cuircuit for the motor.
The best thing to do is have the control motor checked and the ecm. One of them is bad.

2004 GMC Envoy SLT 4.2L the engine will crank but want start why?

P1516 = Throttle Actuator Position Performance
P2101 = Throttle Actuator "A" Control Motor Circuit Range/Performance

Both of these codes indicate a problem with your throttle position actuator system. I'm not sure how GMC/Chevy treat this, it's possible that if the PCM/ECM will not allow the engine to start if the throttle actuator is not working properly (it may cause the engine to accelerate rapidly when running). You could try replacing the throttle actuator, but that may not solve the problem if it's a wiring issue. Best to have it checked out by a qualified mechanic.

The 2006 nissan altima 2.5 is turning over but want run. It's reading code P2101. I recently replaced to motor mounts. After they we're replaced it was all down hill.

code p2101 refers to throttle actuator control(TAC) motor---range/performance problem===causes wiring --TAC motor.
having working around the motor it is possible that you have pulled apart a wire connection or damaged a wire so check that area out for a fault.

I recently did a scan on my engine and multiple code came up. Can you help me find out what they mean? (p01516, p2101, p2119, p2176)

The letter p stands for powertrain, codes are as follows:
1516-Throttle Actuator Control Module
2101-TAC Position Performance
2119-Throttle Closed Position Performance
2176-Minimum Throttle Position Not learned
All the codes pertain to the Throttle Actuator Contol Module. If you are having driveability issues, you may want to look into replacing the TAC.
