Recently replaced intake gaskets, engine has 332000 miles on it. Before this problem I had very low oil pressure. Now when oil heats up oil pressure goes to zero. Check gages light comes on.

Hello Marty, I suggest you install an auxiliary mechanical oil pressure gauge to see what the true oil pressure really is and go from there.

05 frontier in limp mode no codes transmission just replaced

If you paid a professional to replace the trans, go back to him first so he can give his opinion. Before you do, check the fluid level of the trans, and the condition of the fluid. Any sign of water?
But the problem may not be the trans, there could be faults in the engine or cooling system causing the ECU to select limp mode to get you back home.
Have you scanned the computer directly with a scanner?
Don't rely on the check engine light for very thing relating to codes.

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.

In and out of limp mode

My 2 experiences with limp mode was on a 93' Chevy. 1 time was the ecm, but it didn't reset until I replaced the ecm. The other time was the main electrical plug that comes from the ecm. The largest electrical plug on the trans. I unplugged it and there was trans fluid inside the plug on the 16 pins that connect the external wire Barnes to the internal wire harness of the trans. This required a new harness inside of the trans and replacing the external harness near the trans. Not an easy fix and may not be your issue, but this issue would "come and go". Fluid would short out the communication at the pins.

My dodge caravan 3.3L shows 5 malfunction codes what do they mean po455 po846 po500 po700 po732

P0455 = Evap leak monitor large leak detected.
This code usually means the gas cap may have been loose or needs the rubber gasket.

P0500 = No vehicle speed sensor signal.
Vehicle speed sensor is located on the transmission near one of the axle shafts (it may need replacing).

P0700 = EATX controller DTC present.
This simply means you have transmission related codes.

P0732 = Gear ratio error in 2nd gear.
This code is of some concern, it means the transmission is slipping in 2nd gear. However the trans may be in limp mode due to the speed sensor code (limp mode means the trans starts out in second gear in order to at least get to a mechanic). The first thing I would do is have these codes cleared as there may be absolutely nothing wrong with the transmission (especially if you pull the trans dip stick and the fluid does not have a burnt smell. The vehicle should drive normally after that. If the check engine light comes back, have the codes scanned ASAP (before any other unrelated code sets). Chances are it may be the output speed sensor if this happens (easy fix). Hope this helps

Replaced trans because i could not get out of limp mode i replaced sensors,relays,tcm,grounds and checked all wiring. now new trans is in limp if i reset it the trans shifts great once you restart it back...

This usually points to a sensor issue or a computer failure.

What diagnostics have been done with a diagnostic data scanner. If its in limp mode what codes did you have before and what codes do you have now. ??

And what year vehicle are we talking about here??
