Car was towed back to shop who did the faulty installation on the CV joint and axle replacement and they said they cited a defective CV joint from Auto Zone. Before it was towed in, the tow truck driver had pointed out areas of the axle to photograph which I did but did not see any obvious damage. The two shops the vehicle has been to since that time for the problem that has now shown up with the transmission have said they could not replicate limp mode and that there were no codes. Yesterday I brought it to a transmission shop who said I need a new transmission, but they had no codes to give me either. It is an old transmission with a replaced solenoid pack 10,000 miles ago but drove fine until the CV incident. Since the incident with CV joint an axle, it now regularly goes into limp mode after six and half miles and will stay in that mode until I turn engine off, and then on again. The shops that I took my car to that could not replicate the limp mode but have done repairs they said were needed (replaced camshaft and oxygen fuel sensors as well as ignition and transmission mount). I wonder if there could be an overall electrical problem with the vehicle? I did not drive long when the metal on metal screeching began, but I am thinking of what the tow truck driver said about the possible damage to the transmission. I do not understand how that could harm it. Any thoughts are most welcome, and thank you.
