There is no way to know with the provided info.

I did have one that behaved like this and the computer was not controling the Transmision, so it stayed in second gear all the time. Called "Limp in Mode"

These trucks tend to have transmisions that work or fail completly very quickly otherwise.

You need to get a diagnoses from a computer equiped shop.
