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?
