not sure what my signature says, been a while since i think i updated it, but basically, all i got is the LLY with EFI live DSP5 from duramaxtuner, an AFE intake elbow, and exhaust. now, when on any level over 3 and when i am going about highway speeds, 45 MPH +, when in 5th gear and i floor it to get around someone, the truck never down shifted and then BOOM, it slammed into i believe 3rd of 4th gear and through a code. so i slow down to a light, and then i get going and there was no 1st or second. it felt like just 4th or something. i have had this done a few other times. does this mean that the tranny just went into limp mode? and does this happen to anyone else? do i got a TC going out?

You limped the tranny. Start saving for a tranny upgrade.

^^^ye what he said! haha 5th cant hold much power compared to the others especcialy the 4-5 and 5-4 shifts. cycle your key a few times and it should go away. may have to clear codes depends.

well i just shut it off for a few min and it went away. so atleast its limping it. (i know thats not good to do) but atleast im not expierencing something very tragic. now that i have limped it before, more then once, is it just messing up my tranny more and more?

Yes each time you do more damage. How much longer it will last is anyone's guess. Best bet is to go to stock & save for a tranny rebuild.
