Australian Car Repair Issues? Ask an Auto Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello! My name is Gary.Welcome to JustAnswer.I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with a reply shortly.
Is the engine light on?
Can you check for codes please?
Normally on a VS 5.0, the auto will stay in 1st gear if the PCM thinks you are at wide open throttle. TPS or wiring is the cause.
Do you need any further help?
I hope my advice has been of assistance to you.
