HI. This will be a straight forward approach here. The knock sensor code is in reference to the sensor voltage. This sensor will need to be replaced. I would also advise to inspect the connecting harness connectors for faults. The harness links the sensor to the ECM. Make sure that harness is not shorted by testing it with a meter. You can test the sensor by Starting the engine and run at idle. Next; Measure voltage at the ECM pin 64. The voltage should be approximately 2.4 vDC.

Now; the TPS code is a basic failure code. You will simply need to replace that sensor. That sensor has failed, or it is damaged, thus, causing the erratic shifting patterns you are experiencing at this time.

Concerning your distributor:

This device should not rattle. There my be a looses ring strop connector, or the internal components may be deteriorating. I would inspect the cap mounting and internals for faults. Replace the entire distributor if faults exist.

Can a transmission malfunction if overfilled with transmission fluid?


How Does Overfilling Cause Problems? If you overfill the transmission, you will find that the fluid may foam, and that can lead to erratic gear shifting. Other problems can include transmission damage and oil starvation.

I would check for any codes, even if the check engine light is off. These Cars had a few different problems like this. The first is the Cam or Crank sensor failing. The second is the Timing belt jumping a tooth due to not replacing it at or around 60k. Ive seen this many times, With an advanced timing belt, it will run well, if not better than normal at cruising speeds but can cause stalling at low RPM, erratic idle, rough idle, lake of power from take off.

My dodge dakota it idles below 1000 rpms and it sounds like its about to stall. and if i rev it up and then let off it will stall instantly. when i am driving from first gear to second it goes up to 4000...


It is actually hard to say without actually seeing the vehicle, but the target speed for your engine idle is around 750 RPM. The stalling after revving kind of depends on how high you are revving it and whether the engine is at operating temperature or not. This may be normal. Then again, it could be that the Idle Air Control (IAC) is not working properly.

The shifting from first to second at 4000 RPM sounds like a completely separate problem. This could be due to low transmission fluid level, sticking shift control solenoids, or possibly even a malfunctioning Vehicle Speed Sensor.

If the Check Engine light is on, have that checked first.

When the truck idles the engine stops running


Does it feel as if the vehicle is not "down shifting" into low gear when you approach the stoplight? If so, then the torque converter "lock up" for OVERDRIVE may not disengaging so the vehicle is stuck in high gear and it will kill the motor. If you switch to park and it starts right back up that might be the problem. A temporary fix is to disconnect a wire from the lock-up torque converter switch, but overdrive won't work and you wouldn't want to do a lot of highway driving until you replace the lock-up switch.

2000 Celica GT-S. Engine 'bucking' anywhere from idle to wot


locate the mass air flow sensor. it's located inline with the air intake. it should be right after the air filter. disconnect the plug and see if the car runs better. also, when tapping on it lightly on the sensor with a screwdiver handle and the engine skips, could also indicate a bad sensor. these sensors will not always set the check engine light. suspecting the fuel system is also a possibility

How to reset the service engine soon light


If there is an Auto Zone or any other large auto parts store, have them scan the truck for the DTC codes. The DTC codes will identify the Issues that needs to be addressed in your engine and transmission that has set off the service engine light on. Once the issues has been resolved, the light will reset it self after the third start up and after 40 start up will erase it self from the history as long as there is no additional issues. Good luck and hope this helps, Shift suddenly become very hard. When going from park to either reverse or drive it slams into gear. 1-2 and 2-3 shifts are also harsh. All gears seems to work. Problem may be intermittent: Check TPS for smooth electrical response. If the response is jumpy or erratic at all, replace TPS.
