I thought that my '01 was having low end power loss issues but after thinking about what was happening, I determined that it was a transmission issue. It would barely take off and when coming to a stop it would "roll" into neutral with a "thump". I realized that it was taking off in 3rd gear then not down shifting. It turned out to be the governor sensor and selenoid. Good as new ever since. hope this helps if you haven't solved your problem already. TS
