it should be 2nd gear as that is "limp" mode on that trans. the fluid can be cherry and still have an internal problem, as its a mechanical part that has failed, not the electronics. the reason the code is thrown is because the info from the input and output speed sensors are not matching what they should for the programming of the TCM.
