Re: I Think I Fixed My Rough Shifting 8sp Transmission

Just a heads up for everyone....replaced my air filter today (13k miles) with a Fram ExtraGuard and my 2014 V6 shifts like butter now. No more popping on the 2-1 shift and much smoother downshifts. ...

Re: FLASH: TRANSMISSION SHIFT ENHANCEMENTS (vehicles with 3.6L engine)

The Malfunction lamp with code PO606 is resolved by the PCM flash update. See the TSB on wk2jeeps.com. Sounds like your techs didn't apply the other flash updates.
