Hello and Welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with your inquiry. Feel free to ask if any further info is needed.When the TCM (transmission control module) detects a fault, it will revert to limp home mode (2nd gear), it will also store fault codes.In your case, it seems the transmission fluid temperature is rising. However, to confirm the fault and proceed with the necessary repairs, we need to connect to a diagnostic computer (scan tool), to retrieve the fault codes.

Having the fault codes, we should be able to know which parts or components need checking, and i would be able to tell you how and what to check if needed.When you let the transmission cool down a bit, and cycle ignition (off/on), the codes will stay stored, but the system will reset, hence working back normally upon resting.
