2001 Pontiac Montana, 160,000


#1

on summer vacation, over 900 miles from home, trans will not shift pass 3rd. No codes show, disconnected battery to reset computer, still will not shift & no codes


#2

It’s in the ‘limp mode’ to protect the tranny from being burned out.

Still. it will let you ‘limp’ to a tranny repair shop.

You can’t fix it on the street as a scanner has to be hooked up and the vehicle driven to assess the problem.


#3

Low automatic transmission fluid level? Some cars you check the level with the engine running in Park. Some, with the engine off. Read the dipstick.
