Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases, I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
I am here Sundays through Thursdays from around 5 am to 2 pm Mountain time.If you respond and I do not respond back right away I will do so as soon as I can.

This can be a common fault of the EGR valve or throttle body electronics as well as a transmission/gearbox solenoid acting up.These are the most common causes of this issue with the limp mode.But there are several other components unfortunately that can also cause this issue here.

What has to be done is to have the fault codes read out/checked with a compatible scan tool or computer that will plug into your vehicles data port that can read all computers in your vehicle.Once this is done there will be at least one fault code set.

The code that is set will then need to be diagnosed to then help to locate which component is at fault.Once this is done the component found at fault will have to be replaced.

This has to be done as there are several different components of the engine and transmission/gearbox that can cause this issue here.This will help to narrow down and pinpoint which component needs to be replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks, Pete
