A weak battery or low battery voltage can cause the transmission to enter into fail safe mode. This will cause a loss of power because the transmission will be locked in third gear.

    Battery when dead a few days later. I replaced the battery and no more problem, tho I didn't know it would correct the power problem.

    Just after I purchased this car used I found that sometime it would stay in third gear. I replaced the battery and the problem was completely resolved.
