Limp Home mode...oddity?

I was turning on the road where I work this morning my tranny rev'd on me so I slowly got back into it expecting it to slam on me but instead I get the wrench on my dash and my truck wouldnt go over 20 mph. I roll into work (thankfully 300 yards away) and see that I just got hit with limp home mode. After shutting off the truck I fired it back up and heading to my mechanic about 3 miles away. Limp mode never came back on. I am getting fluids changed now and I hope this was just an oddity and won't happen again. I have 20k left on my warranty just in case but I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this on a one time basis without any major problems?

I'm running Spartan 250 on a job 1 2008 and I guess I am looking for someone to reassure me it will all be ok

I would still take it to the dealer so you will have a record if it happens again.

I just suffered from this same thing.

Code p0657 came up and the dealer had to replace the Transmission control module.

I had recently put on a K&N and Gibson catback, and freaked out.

At first I thought it was a MAS issue.
