Q: Car stuck in limp mode

asked by on

My car is stuck in limp mode.

It sounds like one of the shift solenoids is not functioning properly. I would recommend having a technician come out from YourMechanic and pull the codes on the computer, replace the shift solenoid, and change the transmission filter and fluid.
