Re: Engine/Transmission Issues

Are you sure you're not just feeling MDS in operation? It'll happen during light throttle operation, kind of like what you're describing. You'll feel it most during lower speed, low RPM situations...

Re: V6 Transmission Shifting MUCH Better after Reflashes

It likely will get better as you continue to drive it. When they did the new "quick learn" that just set up a base clutch calibration for the transmission. The adaptives will pick up from there and...
