the power of take off like I used to I need help fast I
know I need 2 O2 sensors and I have a small

It could be a transmission internal pressure problem, but I'm thinking it's the computer retarding the timing cause it's picking up what it thinks is an engine ping due to the knock you have, the computer will retard the timing down to zero trying to make the knock go away, as it won't the timing just stays low. A live data scan would most likely verify this. So get the knock fixed first then see if performance improves.
