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.
1, Reboot the IDS to clear memory before reprogramming.
2. Using IDS 78.02 or later software, reprogram the PCM to the latest calibration by following the “Module Reprogramming” procedure.
3. After performing the PCM reprogramming procedure, verify the repair by starting the engine and making sure that there is no MIL illumination or abnormal warning lights present.
4. Verify the transmission fluid level.
