I was driving my wife's van to work this morning on the freeway (~60 mph) and it suddenly downshifted and stayed in the lower gear. Would not come out of it. Felt like it may have gone into 2nd as opposed to dropping into 3rd. Engine light also came on.
When I got to work, I checked the tranny fluid and it was full, clear (not cloudy), and didn't stink at all (no burned smell). Have not checked the filter because I have no tools here.
Transmission was replaced under warranty in about 2005 and had worked fine ever since. Did my transmission just die or did the care go into some sort of "limp-home" mode?
have the same problem?
