Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Transmission Output speed sensor will cause this problem. This is a common problem. I would check all the wiring as well make sure there are not broken wires. Sounds like you transmission is in limp mode.

You need to scan the trans for codes and view live data to fully diagnose this problem. You will need a shop quality scan tool to do this as well. A code reader will not work.
