hi my 2012 Galaxy goes into limp mode after driving for a long distance...its happened on the last 3 journeys around a 100 miles or so but when it cools down again it is fine with no warning lights and nothing comes up on the diagnostic report. It has been to 3 different Ford garages now but they cannot find a fault with it Any suggestions would be appreciated

Kindly profer your advise to me,the gear cable of my ford galaxy cuts each time I select the reverse gear. Thereby making it impossible for the car to reverse. The mechanic has changed the gear cable for four times and each time he selects reverse gear after fixing it. It cuts from the black portion that is clipped at that bonnet section. Thank you
