WTF: truck took off in 3rd gear

the other night my truck (in sig) took off from a stop in what felt like 3rd gear. has been shifting fine but i pulled out and got down on it pretty hard and let it shift through the gears then came to a red light and took off and it lugged its way up to speed. it did this at 2 different stops then after that it went back to shifting normally. no CEL or any lights were/are on, IDK if it just went into limp mode or if it was shocked because i normally baby it everywhere. trck only has 42k miles on it.

I have a Mini Maxx, not a Spartan, but every once in a great while it'll do something funny like that. Once it locked the torque converter in 2nd and wouldn't come out of that gear. I pressed the tow/haul button twice and it cleared up. It's just one of those things I guess.

I'd only be worried if it keeps doing it.

That makes me feel a little better. Was really weird, i even tried putting the selector down in 1st but it just stayed in 3rd. I priced a new Tranny last night, I'm definitely not ready for that bill... lol

mine has done it before with an h&s and after getting back up into 5th gear it goes away. Ive had it tuned for a year and a half so far and its only done it twice
