Is it ok to drive till i can get it fixed
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 10 months ago.

i want drive to much on it , Because you stuck in low gear , those sensor are messing up the transmission shifting points

you can drive it , just keep an eye on temperature ,you dont want to drive to long on low gear and heat up the fluid inside than you have more internal problems ,if you drive in town ,you will be okay, but if you have to take highway be hard to stay in low gear and not heat it up

these sensor are price cheap pick them up from parts store and change them your self

good luck with it
