Which article? Alan Mulally on Ford Quality or Prophet Economist Issues Eerie Warning.Check this article out.............i don't know what to believe
It would be awesome if that flash fixes these issues. [thumb]Well took the car in this morning for several different items and the trans was one of them, Tech drove it and noticed the shudder, flare and flat spot when you hit the throttle, Flashed the new PCM/TCM flash and said it fixed it. Still in the shop for a couple other issues but will see if there is any improvement when it comes home.
Will let you know on initial impression and then after a week or so.
Well I went to a nice lady advisor instead of the guy I talked to on the phone. Explained to her that the last time I had the car checked out for the same issues was Sept. 1st, before any of the relevant TSBs were released, so maybe they were told to tell customers it was normal then, but now that the update is out... it's no longer the case. I explained that the TSB just updates the programming on the PCM/TCM to improve low-speed driveability and explained my symptoms and she wrote it in.Keep us posted, not only about the performance but any sort of "hassle" dealership may or may not try and give you!
I had the same problem in BC, apparently the service advisor attempted to look up the TSB by using my serial number and nothing came up as available. He then phoned me back and asked if I new the TSB number which I told him I thought was either 11-10-02 or 11-10-01, a few minutes later he called me and stated he found it, and has no idea of why it wasn't on my list, needless to say they installed it.I spoke with two different dealers today in Toronto and none of them had a clue about this update.
Ahh, so behind the times.
Good to see this update helped out though.
