Noemi, I do my milage long hand. The readout on the display never gives me acruate results. My 2nd grade math of milage & gallons works perfect every time

Got mine done 2 days ago and initial impressions are:
Shuttering and vibrations at low gears are eliminated. Seems to be a bit more power and certainly smoother shifting when starting from zero. Shifting seems tighter. Not as much rolling backwards when letting off the brake.
I'm happy. Based on some jerks on this board, I thought the shuttering, noise and vibrations from the transmission were because I "didn't know how to drive" - - amazing what they can fix that now with a TSB update, isn't it? [/vindicated]

I was pretty surprised to find out how many people 'knew' how the DCT was supposed to shift...

No grinding is not normal

Well my car seems to have "reverted", and the transmission is performing poorly again. I don't understand how the car gets worse over time.The car almost literally feels like it is "jumping", or "lurching" forward with each shift. I also swear to god that outside air temperature affects shifting, as it seems to get worse the hotter it is outside.

Same as all the previous transmissions updates then...works great at first and then reverts back to previous behavior

Hmm, then something should be wrong with mine. Because after more than 2500 km after the FSA, I didn't see any "revert" at all. I will give it another 5000 km to see if what you say it's true. And don't worry, if it is not in 5000 km, I will wait another 10000 km. Everything for you to be happy !

Thats a bummer. My 12B37 FSA changed the transmission of my SEL and now it's a different animal. Very fun to drive. Feel like Gran'pa? it's buttery smooth. Feel like havin' fun, it's way more responsive. Also, we kind of have a little heat wave going on here up north (anything above 30° Celcius 3 days in a row is a heat wave for us ) and my tranny works perfectly, even in near 30°ish temp.

They only thing that bugs me a little is comming out of a 90° turn when you drive in ''D'' and throtlle back on, there is somekind of lag when you drive a bit more agressively. I followed some advice I found on this forum and now shift to ''S'' when I'm about to take a 90° turn and it rips tru the corner.

If you take the 90° turn in a regular way, in ''D'' and accelerate normally out of it, everything is fine, well, at least for me. I hope you'll be able to have this corrected as I now enjoy my SEL waaaay more than before. I hope it'll last.

No you're definitely right. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the transmission. Ford just releases a new update for it every few months just for the fun of it.

Correct me if I am wrong, please. I didn't say everything is perfect, I said that I didn't see a revert to what it was before the update. And I hardly can imagine this, when we are talking about a change in the program of the PCM and TCM. Can you explain how something that's been programmed to act different, can be reverted to something that doesn't exist anymore? It's like saying "I updated to MSOffice 2007, but after a while, it reverted to MSOffice 2003". Doesn't make sense for me. But maybe it's just me.
