Q: Transmission gets stuck in 2nd after warmed up but will fix when Cars is shut off and on.

asked by on

When driving the car after it gets warm it will not shift down into 3 But when slowed down it goes into limp mode and stays in second gear and will not shift into another gear unless put into park and restarted. Is it a censor thats bad or does valve pan an little pistols in transmission need replaced?
