Hello and welcome to just answer. Did the shop tell you what the transmission diagnostic trouble codes are that is causing it to go into limp in?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No,they had the car 3 days, said they were having difficulty figuring out my problem. And insisted that the transmission code that showed up required a new transmission or rebuild. If this is true why does it work fine after in turn it off and restart it. Plus this was over a year ago. It just started to do it more often.
Expert:  Chris replied 1 year ago.

Get a second opinion. I think that it is a sensor or transmission solenoid problem.

In helpful, I have already made that assumption and got a second opinion. But I am not satisfied with your responses.or those from the shops I took them to. Top vague
Expert:  Chris replied 1 year ago.

I understand, but if you are able to get the codes I can be more precise as to what solenoid or sensor may be causing this. Since you cannot tell me the codes it is tough to diagnose at my end. Make sense? My answers and suggestions are only as good as the information you provide to me. If you can somehow get the codes, then I can futher help you.
