Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.

when it is stuck in 2nd gear it is in limp mode,,the computer puts the transmission into limp when it picks up a problem

from the way you explain and sense the problem is intermediate,,i would think your problem here is the shift solenoid block[common with this transmission]

i would think you will need to replace the solenoid block to fix your problem
