what you are feeling when you see the tranny go into "limp mode" is the tranny shifting into 3rd gear and not coming out ever, until you turn off the engine. I would suggest changing the filter and fluid and then checking the tranny computer if all those check out time for a new tranny.

Is your check engine light on? If so, get your mechanic to check the fault code by plugging into the OBD computer. It will narrow down the cause of the problem you are having. Let us know!!!! JM>
