sounds like the timing is off from the transmission to the engine somehow. if the timing is off that will throw the crank sensor most likely and the tps will be off because if the timing is off the throttle position sensor wont read right because it is like you have advanced or moved the timing of the engine. hope this helps

a bent or broken flywheel will also cause these symptoms
