It's actually stuck in second gear. That's "limp" mode that allows you to drive slowly to a repair shop. You must turn the ignition switch off and restart the engine to get it out of limp-in. As a general rule, if it goes right to second gear as soon as you shift into gear, the problem is sensor-related. If it goes to limp-in during or right after an up-shift, it is more likely to be slippage in one of the clutch packs. You

Thank you, I had to drive it 32 miles home that way I hope I didn't mess up the transmission. And I'm praying like crazy I won't get charged a arm and leg just to have it looked at let alone fixed.
