Try to scan (OBD) it and get back. Limp mode is a lot of faults to cause it trip to limp mode. Without code, my guess is you still have vacuum leak.

Same thing happened to me this morning. Started the truck and it was clearly misfiring. Moved it a short distance. check engine soon light came on. Shut it off then restarted and it was fine. Weird. Had to go to work so I haven't had a chance to check for any codes.

Sometimes even you don't have check engine light on, you can still get the fail codes. Sometimes only........
