I had additional problems with the van. the total bill was 1055.04 for the MAP sensor, pcv hose, spark plugs, spark plug wires, and coils. I thought that it was the PCM but this fixed it. Hope this fixes this problem.

The engine light has come on in my van approx. 2 years ago. I have had it to several mechanics and it was put on the computer. The reading they get on the computer is very vague and I have not yet found a reason for the light being on. A sensor of some sort, I think, is the problem. Ever since the light came on, my van has had a problem of jerking when I am driving, seems almost like it is going to stall out. I kept thinking that the torque converter problem was the jerking, stalling motion, but I have had it happen once since the torque converter was replaced.
