    Thanks but the fluid is fine, the trans is not slipping, it goes into third gear until I turn off and restart the engine. under normal driving situations the trans operates as per the book.

Irratic engine power some times goes into a limp mode at35oo rpms what causes this


Has to do with the transmission. Can be wiring/plugs from the PCM to trans, wiring inside the trans, or a solenoids inside the trans is shorting out. Have the codes read. Check the trans fluid also. When it gets low, it can cause a pressure code. This will throw it into limp mode.

I have a jaguar s type 2000 it writes gearbox fault and is in limp mode funny the fan is noisy to,please help


You must have a check engine light on in your dash. You first need to pull up the code. I will assume your trans is an automatic. If so, when your trans goes into limp mode, if you stop , shut off your motor, and start again, does your car run OK again, till the next time it goes into limp mode. If so you have a bad trans solenoid. Sometimes this solenoid is on the outside of a trans and sometimes it's on the inside. If inside you would have to drop the pan, and valve body, because it's on top of the valve body. The fan is a separate issue. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

1990 chrysler new yorker will not shift into overdriver


You may have to have your ******/computer ran for any codes to give you a better idea of why it is limp mode. There are many causes of limp mode. A sensor or solenoid or bad wire will send the computer into limp mode. The TPS and map sensor both can affect limp mode

The arrow symbol brinks continously when the car is motion and this affects the speed. once the upward arrow symbol is on the acceleration reduces.please what is wrong


You will have to get the vehicle scanned to find out what is wrong. The vehicle won't accelerate properly because the transmission control unit has gone into limp home mode (this is to protect the transmission from any further damage). When the trans goes into limp home mode, it goes into high gear and stays there when moving. There will not be any kickdown mode either.

My 2000 dodge caravan just went into its limp mode for the transmission. It is staying in second gear and will not shift higher. What could be the reason?


The transmissions available in your caravan are problematic for having a bad solenoid pack. Once the transmission is set in the LIMP IN mode, then you need to take it to a dealer to get the code reset from the transmission and to get it diagnosed properly. I'm sure there will be a code such as, "trans solenoid stuck in LR" which means " low range" if the transmission went into limp in mode, then that simply means it defaulted to second gear only. Which is telling you to have it looked at asap. I'm sure if you repalce the transmission solenoid pack and gasket and perform the re-learn procedure, then your problem will go away. good luck!
