Sounds like some sort of "kickdown" problem, after my friend had his tranny rebuilt in his F150 it started out in 2nd gear sometimes, wouldnt downshift when you wanted, and the OD light flashed a lot of the time.. if the OD light isn't flashing, you may just try resetting the computer, like take the negative cable off the battery for 20 mins or so.

sounds like the output shaft spped sensor went bad, the transmission will default into second gear as a safety precaution.

Get it checked by a computer. You might be surprised that it's just something simple. Computer problem or something. Computer issues can get expessive though too but not as bad as a new tranny. Be optimistic!
