Is it stuck in one gear? If so, which gear?
If so, check the fuse for the tranmission.

Are you saying rather that the engine is in limp mode?
Are there any codes stored?
Failure of the MAF causes the PCM to trigger the "limp-in" mode.

Check the tranmission fuse.

I checked fuse and its good
Transmission Mechanic: Mike S., Mechanic replied 3 years ago
It may be good, but you have to test it with a voltmeter or 12 volt test light on both sides to make sure, because what if something feeding it don't have power, then simply looking at the fuse isn't good enough. Understand? If you did actually test it, then move onto testing that wire at the tranmission.

I used a test light and it was good
Transmission Mechanic: Mike S., Mechanic replied 3 years ago
So it showed voltage to both sides of the fuse? Ok then. Do you have voltage at the tranmsission?

Transmission Mechanic: Mike S., Mechanic replied 3 years ago
You never did tell me what engine is this this.
I see that the trans fuse has a pink wire coming off it and splices into 2 pink wires which go to pins E and T of the tranmission. The key must be on run but I assume you already knew that.
