Change the two sensors on the transmission the fluid did not smell burnt still and limp mode it goes up to 30 goes into neutral. I don't know what I'm missing. I don't have no leaks anywhere. When I was driving it I heard a big pop and it went into limp mode and never came out of it. So I took the battery cables off see if I can reset the computer and see where to go from there if anybody has any ideas please leave and inbox or something.

Hi,

What you need to do in this case is have the computer scanned for diagnostic trouble codes related to the transmission. If you don't have a scan tool, often times a parts store will do it free of charge. Here are a link and a quick video showing how it's done:

Try doing this and let me know what you find. If you are unable to, let me know.

Yeah, I have a scan tool but it does not do a transmission trouble. Does O'Reilly's Auto parts have a scan tool that does that?

Hi,

I have to be honest. I don't know if they would have one. I have found that different locations have different scanners. LOL Call and ask if it is something they can do.

Let me know what you find.
