Nah i haven't gotten that - the battery light comes on sometimes when i stop and the lights inside alwayz flicker / surge. It still drives fine so im not worried about it. If it stop all together or all my lights go out i'll get that done.

SVT4Life - get the reflash.
I've noticed some jerking. I notice it moew when the engine is cold. I think it might be the surging everyone talks about that is supposed to be fixed with a reflash.

The YRF0 did not fix everything as I'm sure some of us that have had the latest reflash have notice. My SVTF also still does the jerking or lunging at lower rpm's, and as Infra already stated I only notice it when the motor is cold.

Yeah i think once the weather gets warm it should stop doing that like today it was nice and warm outside not too cold and i did not notice anything wrong..it ran perfectly today..its prolly just the cold ..anyway i'll keep an eye on it.

some of the surging is due to the dual mass flywheel, i read something about it somewhere that said a jerky clutch is common with them... i think it was motor trend or car & driver...

I think the jerking happens in most SVTs. right below 3000 rpms when idling. sound about right?

Depends, I've read that most drivers are having this problem, some say they have had no problems at all. Who knows, cause I dont. lol To many complaints of it for it to be in the drivers head, I know I dont imagine it.

I have another annoying complaint that my dealer has yet to figure out. I have a slight sound, hear it when you push and let off the gas. Sounds like a slight buzz like grinding, not to loud, yet not very soft. I've read on SVTOA of others having this same complaint, with no luck on finding the source. Also yes my car is still in the shop, with the original tranny still torn apart, but I have a nice surprise coming, stay tune for the thread and pics. [;)]

can't wait R&D mine is also in the shop due to an accidnet I got in (its in for some serious work but ill have it back soon hopefully)

This problem doesn't seem like its hurting the car its just kind of annoying I can deal with it cause I know ford isn't gonna be able to do anything about it
