1997 Cadillac Catera 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 77000 miles
Transmission goes into limp mode intermittently for the past year. Sometimes several times a day and sometimes not for several weeks. I purchased the car from my dad (low milles) but for the last year since I owned it drive it every day. If the transmission light goes on when I stop I turn the car off and back on and Im on my way. Besides going into the limp mode, getting codes P1700 and P1870 and the Service Engine light turning on I have not felt or heard anything that would make me think there was an issue with the trans. I changed the trans filter and fluid which looked good. Also changed the alternator. Cleared codes or drive serveral trips and the Service Engine light goes out.
