OK did you replace the engine speed sensor also known as the crank sensor thats code p0321 Thats the main issue.You need to repalce this first clear codes and see if any codes come back.The p2181 is for a sticking thermostat and the p2101 is a communication loss.You need to repalce the speed sensor (crank sensor)next and you should be fine.Hoped this helped.Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
