Re: It's Baaack....Rough Downshifting V6 Transmission

I had mine re-flashed a few weeks ago with the "latest" flash and I have not had any issues.
The previous flash gave me issues after a few weeks
I guess we will see

Re: It's Baaack....Rough Downshifting V6 Transmission

***UPDATE***

Had my first small transmission hiccup this morning after getting the latest reflash done. Yes the rough 2nd to 1st gear downshift is completely gone during normal driving conditions, but I noticed a rough downshift to 1st when I was pulling into a parking space at work today...after I came to the first stop...before finally inching ahead to get as close to the wall as possible...I felt the slight 2nd to 1st gear "bump".

Seems the delay Chrysler has added to the latest reflash downshifting into 1st gear is not long enough.

Mine's the opposite of yours. After I got my flash, everything seemed fine when I downshift while I slow down. HOWEVER, when I accelerate after starting my car (or when I'm stopped on the highway or whatever), the transmission stays in 1st gear way too long. I'm not sure what RPM I'm at, but I'll update this post once I confirm it later today. I get a bad "lunge" when this 1-2 upshift happens and it's definitely noticeable. Is there a separate TSB that handles the upshifts instead of the downshifts?
