You could have a electrical issue or an internal transmission issue causing your loss of third gear. The first step would be to check the powertrain control module (PCM) for fault codes. Any stored fault codes will need to be diagnosed and repaired. If there are no codes stored in the PCM then the fault is most likely inside the transmission.
