Limp mode. A fault has been detected in the transmission and it goes in to reduced power to prevent further damage but get you off the road, home, a safe place.....maybe, but it will not shut down entirely..so I may be off base here, just a guess

Appreciate the answers. There wasn't a potato in the tailpipe. The problem was a clogged PCV system. Parts repalced with labor $510.

I am in the wrong business. A PCV system is such a simple, parts inexpensive, accessible, wow that seems steep, even if say $150 alone was for diagnosis, but if it got your car running and you are happy, well so be it. The valve is where the 10 bucks came from.
