Thanks.. I have run a diagnostic test and it read that the timing is off. But then it read oxygen sensor. I got a tune-up, tested compression, changed sensors, bad wires and fluids changed. Result is that runs great. Could the computer be bad? Or something worse.

This may be an electrical problem. Check the wiring and the connectors for the effected sensor(s) that are throwing the trouble code(s). HTH. -Jim
