Sounds like it might be leaning out, is there a check engine light on? If so have the codes pulled at someplace that does this, auto zone will do it for free. If no check engine light then you may need to have the system live data checked so the tech can see what the sensors and reading and what the computer is doing with those readings, who knows it might just be a sensor or computer ground.

It's an 01 so you can do a hard reset and then try a drive cycle.

The hard reset is it just unhooking the battery terminals An turning the key for 30 sec or is there more to it?

So then next you need to check the wiring from the ECM to the sensors and the sensors ground, if everything ohms out correctly then you will need a new ECM and ha e it flashed to match the vehicle, and that can only be done at the dealer. So don’t rush through this, make sure the wiring is 100%, don’t jump to conclusions.
