fixed the missing problem, it was the cam sensor. thanx to everyone who helped. now a new problem has arisen. the other day upon coming home the car went into limp mode. I disconnected the battery to let the computers reset, next day car ran fine, that whole week I had to do it only one more time. now this week the car goes into limp again, I disconnect battery, go to drive, shifts into 2nd and stays there. so I try starting in first, well even with the tranny in 1st, the car still shifts to second and stays once again. now I've heard that it could be the output speed sensor, and I have also heard something about a tranny range sensor, and solenoid. supposedly the input speed sensor wouldn't trigger limp mode. any suggestions? really need help with this as I don't want to drive around at a max 50 mph. thanx in advance.
