Re: Diesel transmission jumping

Yeah, honestly, I suspect software is the issue here - I don't hold much hope for the hardware fix.

That said, I seem to remember we both ordered ours right around the first day that ordering...

Re: Diesel transmission jumping

Welp, amongst other things, it sounds like I'm getting a new valve body for my transmission. I'll share the results as well as the work performed when I get it back. It might be up to another week....

Re: Diesel transmission jumping

Just in case anyone is interested here's the output from my code scanner that dropped me into limp mode. I'll be headed to the dealer tomorrow for a fix and for my first service.

Re: Diesel transmission jumping

Crap - now I'm in limp mode. The exhaust filter was full and it wouldn't go into regen on the highway. I'm guessing it was because that weird code was thrown. Now I'm stuck in 3rd gear and 30mph. ...

I have the same thing on mine. I was guessing I needed to get the new transmission software update. Is there anyway to tell if it's current?

Re: BioDiesel vs Petrolium Diesel

One important reason the maintenance schedule is so much shorter is because bio is a solvent and it cleans the crud out of your fuel system.
