Cool! I am thinking that the project could be a community effort. We'll use Pseudocode to create the algorithms that define the DCT's behavior so that everyone can play along.

Ford DCT Simulator v.1
----------------------------
Start engine
Select drive (D) mode on shifter
Depress accelerator like a normal car
GoPower=some random number between 0 and 9
If GoPower < 4 Then
{
Car just sits there
}
Else
{
Hesitate and Stumble
Shift gears
Make loud grinding noise (Play PratoN sound clip)
}

That should be enough to get things started. If it get's too complex we'll have to spin some of it off into separate blocks or functions.

That's the best description of DPS6 operation I've seen, oritpro! :D

Your pseudocode is better than whatever's in the TCM.

Don't forget about the 1st gear (traction control?) shudder before it even grinds into second. And lots of rattles. Headliner, passenger seat, doors, etc.

@oritpro are you going to try to present this to Ford... or you are just messing around, as I suspect? >;-)

Ah yes, the rattles. I wonder if the grinding transmission is resonating the sheet metal and causing the headliner and other parts of the car to come loose and rattle? We could definitely add that to the sim!

These forums don't display code too well (indents), so it will get messy in a hurry without some structure. I might need to use Visio or something and create an image file.

There's a [ code] tag!

Here's my take on the main loop:

Code:
select case (throttle.pedal.position)
{
    case < 80%
       do.nothing
    case = 80.015%
       wait 2 seconds
       downshift 1 gear
    case is > 80.015%
       wait (random) seconds
       shift.mode=greyhoundbus
       engine.mode=gas_is_cheap_right
       clutch.mode=selfdestruct
       wait (random) seconds
       downshift 2 gear
}
And adaptive learning:

Code:
if (driver gentle on throttle)
{
    upshift_schedule = waytooearly
    downshift_schedule = lolwhatdoesdownshiftmean
    shift.mode = incompetent
    power = moped
}
if (driver NOT(gentle on throttle))
{
   upshift_schedule = random
   downshift_schedule = random
   shift.mode = gas_is_cheap_right(so are tires)
   power = warp
}

If he can't get his car fixed and he feels better by hurting Ford's sales - I say why not!? I'm taking my car in tonight to get looked at, so I might go from the naughty list to the nice list in a few weeks...
