Could be your speed sensor.

its the speed sensor. the governor pressure solenoid isnt getting the feed back from the speed sensor so its not allowing any transmission fluid through to shift out of second gear, in a sense the car is in limp home mode

Is your check engine light on? If it is have someone with a code reader plug in to the diagnostic port and obtain the code. That may help determine witch sensor may be causing the issue. Three sensors the input, output, and turbine speed sensor.
