My car has 200000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
The transmission is stuck in limp mode. Check to see if the harness to the transmission is damaged or loose. When the transmission looses power (electrical power), the transmission defaults to the third gear selection as that is the gear that does not require any shifting with electronics. If the harness is good and the harness is supplying power to the transmission, then the harness inside the transmission maybe damaged. I recommend seeking out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you diagnose your transmission.
