The tranny limp mode can be triggered by an electrical issue. Who did your ATF change? Are you SURE they did it properly? Buy yourself a cheap scanner ($20). You won't regret it. Then pull the codes. If nothing is there, perform the battery and alternator check using the MID. If neither of these reveals the problem, have the tranny scanned. There are detailed threads on all of these issues. Do a search to learn more.
