I posted this in another thread, but no real ideas yet as to what's wrong.... Almost $900 in repairs in last 2 weeks and it's still doing it!

Check engine light comes on, hold light flashes and it won't hold the gear over 55... Under 50 and it's fine.

Cannot pull up a hill over 25 mph...

Have had a new alternator put on it, new fan because it flew off and shattered last week after the alternator was replaced, tcp connection replaced today -- same problem tonight and I didn' t think we'd get home from the dealership that is 30 mi from our house (but HAD to go pick up my kids, so couldn't go back to dealer today -- they would have been closed anyhow...)

ANYONE HAVE A CLUE???
