I have a similar problem with my 2000 v8 discovery 2. I found out that it is in sport mode. I followed directions on a previous site to place in high gear then reverse for 20 ft. I have checked the transmission fluid while running in neutral and is a darker red color but full on fluid. It seems when it heats up it goes into this mode. I have taken in to a full service shop and they could not figure out reason for this but told me it would be the crank sensor. I would really appreciated your suggestions on this. Thank you.
