could this have been a regen? was holding gears longer than usual in D.

i took it straight to the nearest dual carrigeway for a blast of about 15 mins or so, holding the revs above 2000 and it seems ok now. I have an OBD code reader which states no errors.

Please advise

Thanks

Thats a classic regen - water temp needs to get above 75 degrees to initiate and will take a normal running temp of 90 to 100. Runs like an old escort with the choke out during this period too
