Cut it off wait a couple of minutes & been running fine...should I have these sensors replaced or wait to see if it happens again

My car has 5215678 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello.

From what you describe it would appear that your vehicle suffered some sort of serious issue, especially if it put the vehicle in limp mode. A few things that can cause the symptoms you describe are issues with the transmission, or with the engine management system. If restarting the vehicle made the issue go away I would wait and see if the issue returns. If it does, I would try to determine what the conditions are when the problem occurs.

Regards,

Eduardo YourMechanic.
