Turbo Lost its Nut?

This bulletin applies to 2012 Audi A3 equipped with a 2.0L turbocharged engine. Complaints may include poor acceleration response, rough gear changes, turbo lag and slightly delayed power transmission.


Shifty Flash

Some 2011 Mazda Tribute vehicles equipped with a 6F35 automatic transmission may exhibit an intermittent harsh 1-2 shift or harsh 5-6 shift regardless of temperatures or soak time. Additionally, 4-5 shift flare may be experienced after an extended cold soak. 2.5L equipped vehicles with late 4-5 shift events/high rpm's may also benefit from this calibration update.


Chevy Is Dead in its Tracks

This bulletin applies to 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado vehicles equipped with the Allison LCT1000 5-speed or 6-speed transmission, where the vehicle may not move in forward or reverse.


Leaky Lincoln

Some 2008-2011 Lincoln Town Car (as well as Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis) vehicles may exhibit a transmission cooler leak at the top left side of the transmission cooler tube area.


Please Back Up

Owners of some 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles equipped with a 6.4L engine may complain that the engine does not have enough power to back a trailer up a steep grade. In addition, they may also indicate that the transmission shifts too early during acceleration while turning.


Starting in Fifth?

Some 2011-2013 Lincoln Navigator and Ford Expedition vehicles equipped with a 6R80 transmission and built on or before 4/8/2013 may exhibit a transmission engagement in 5th gear when starting.


Air Leak Doesn’t Mean Trouble

Input housing and shaft assemblies from transmissions have been incorrectly considered defective when air bubbles are observed coming from between the input shaft and the housing during an air check.


Debris Causes Shift Difficulty

Some 2011-2012 Ford F-Super Duty vehicles equipped with a non-power take-off (PTO) automatic transmission may exhibit high shift efforts due to mud or snow packing around the transmission shift lever area. This is typically found on vehicles operating in extreme mud or snow environments, allowing debris to accumulate on underbody components.
