My car pulls and shifts great untill it shifts out of second gear then there's nothing. I have to drive under 40 in second gear. Is this a major problem or can it be fixed easily. I have a 3.5ltr engine. Thank you James
This is a simple sensor problem. I just had it and the sensor won't allow (to prevent engine damge) the vehicle to shift out of second gear. This is incorporated into the design to allow you to drive the vehicle to get repaired. The dealer will put it on a diagnostic checker, replace your sensor and off you go. Less than one hour.

I believe these models have a transmission temperature sensor. If the transmission gets to hot it puts the car into limp mode until it cools down. A faulty sensor may be your problem. Also you may consider installing a transmission fluid cooler. Most cars have the transmission lines routed through the radiator to cool the fluid but radiators get hot. You want to keep the fluid as cool as possible. Ask your local parts supplier about a transmission cooler.There like 30 bucks but can save you a rebuild later :)
when in auto shift mode you place gear selector in auto shift and as you drive you are in control of upshifting and down shifting, when you want to shift up you slide shifter to the right and to down shift you slide shifter to the left, but also know that the vehicle will up shift on its own if rps are to high and will not downshift all the way back to first, and try not to take off in higher gears that nwill burn the transmission
