Question about 1996 Ford Taurus
If it'll only stay in second, you're in "limp mode" which the car goes into when it detects a problem that higher speeds could make worse. Have the car scanned for chassis and drivetrain fault codes at a shop (these don't always trip a check engine light, so even if the light is out, you may still have a code). If there's a fault, it should be logged in the memory, and that can be used to track down the problem.
