Tiny Mystery Leak

This bulletin applies to 2011 Audi A8 vehicles. The MIL may be on, with no leak found in the EVAP system, and a DTC P0456 (very small EVAP leak) stored in the ECM.

Hard Brake

Some 2011 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator vehicles may exhibit an intermittent hard brake pedal feel or firmness after extended cold soak. A new calibration is available that will improve this concern.

VW Clutch Issue

This bulletin applies to 2009 and later Volkswagen Routan vehicles. If a transmission diagnosis points to a low clutch concern, monitor the main pressure (under data display) during reverse. If there is pressure loss in the low clutch, it will show when in reverse because reverse is essentially maximum output pressure.

Dart Reprogram

This bulletin applies to 2013-2014 Dodge Dart vehicles equipped with a 2.4L engine, built on or before Feb. 14, 2014. The MIL may be on with DTC P2251 (O2 sensor 1/1 negative current control circuit open).
