Limp Mode?

I was running in the snow and started playing a little bit by spinning a few 180's to facilitate an easier U turn and then after that my trans was having a real hard time shifting and finding the right gear. I was in a neighborhood turning left and it kind of shifted hard and felt like it missed a gear and it threw a wrench code on my display which signifies limp mode..... I pulled over cleared the code with my Dashdaq and then restarted the truck. My trans began shifting again so for safety I pulled over and changed tunes for the 275V3 to the 210 tune which I've never had a problem with. So my question is once its slipped and went into limp mode is my tranny on the verge of death? I have 58,000 miles on an 08 job 1 truck and I need to get it in if the trans is going to go........

Had it happen to me quite a few times. did you get the codes? its probably the usual code for a sticking solenoid, its not anything serious to worry about in the near term...it can show that your tranny is starting to wear but like I said its happened to me a number of times and that was thousands of miles ago and my stock tranny is still goin hard! you may wanna consider a spartan tcm since your truck is a job 1, works awesome on my truck and helps your tranny last longer.
