Question about Cars & Trucks

You need to scan for engine trouble codes. Most parts stores will do this for free, and tell you what they mean and make recommendations on what to do. The 'limp mode' kicks in to prevent damage to the vehicle when the computer gets data that something is wrong.. When you shut it off, it's temporarily reset, but then the cars computer is signaling there is still a problem, and it goes back into limp mode. If you have any questions after getting the codes 'read' , post questions and code #;s here for help. Good luck.

Does the speedometer work? If no, then it sounds like the output shaft speed sensor. If yes then it might be the input shaft speed sensor.

theres a solenoid that selects gears it can trick the gearbox into limp mode, id have that checked before spending big money i spent 6000 on a new gearbox (not standard price i had a heavily modified gearbox) because the standard gearbox did the same turns out it was an $80 solenoid, i found out after forking out the money. any ford dealer should be able to plug it in and run diagnostic checks for you
