recently i have had work done to my car because of staling problems. i had the crank sensor and cam sensor replaced and then later new right shock ti-rods and left ball joint. anyways now my car would not start for me a couple weeks ago it would turn over but the gas did not seem to be keeping it going. now i turn my car on and put my foot on the gas and it starts off at a slow putt and slowly works it way up to sounding like i am reving the gas quickly over and over. also it has over heated a few times when just idling. can anyone help me with what could possibly be wrong with my car?

What are some of the possible/most likely reasons why when it gets below 40 degrees outside my 98 Jp Gr Cher 6 cyl 4.0 does not want to shift into overdrive? It will once it has been running about 10-15 minutes. If I start out fully accelerated and the RPM's reach about 4k it will also shift, obviously not something I like doing. I had heard there is a line that run's to the trans. fluid cooler on models equipped for towing, and that there is a filter in that line (like a screen thimble) that gets plugged/is not really nessasary/and should be removed or cleaned, any truth to this?

The engine shuts down completely at randome times the digital odometer, flashes then reads "no bus" and the dials all read 0. After a few minutes all the dials return to their proper spots and the milage reaappears. and I can then re start teh engine and drive normally. I have switched out the distributor, and the idler control, (as per the engine light instruction) Any other Ideas, I am thinking of having computer switched out.
