Name is Greg, My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,

Explain limp mode you have engine or transmission .
engine is where the revs will not go higher than 2500rpm
transmission is where you are stuck in 3rd gear giving you the feeling no power untill you reach 30-40 mph .

Any warning lights ON .

Hi Norrie .

Okay you need to get hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool to see what has malfunctioned .

From the malfunction code we will know what is putting you into limp mode.

Could be the MAF as said but to be sure we need a code check .
