Limp mode and 3rd gear winding out?
Firstly, this might be important that my trep overheated about a week ago. It was the thermostat, no biggie, right? Well it was HOT for about 5 minutes (That I noticed). I let it cool off, drove it home (bout 3 miles). Replace thermo and everything was cool. (literally!-hehe)
Now..yesterday, I'm driving and about 60 and someone slowed up in front of me. I let off the gas and got back on it and there was no gear, just high RPM's. I pulled over thinking, I'm out $2,000 already. To my surprise, it jumped back ino gear (2nd) and thought I was gona be cool until it wouldn't shift (limp mode).
Well, after reading this EXCELLENT forum, I discovered what limp mode was. Is is possible that the Input/Output sensor is still bad or can I assume that because it's trying to go into 3rd and winding out that the gear is out and that it is just going back down to 2nd to get me home? I was told that if 3rd gear is out and it winds to 4,000RPM, that it will kick down to 2nd. I hope this was enough information.
I want to keep my TREP!!!!!!!! Don't tell me I have to spend 2K to do so!
