Good news after a lot of complaining

All, I have some good news after all of the complaining I have done on this forum about my trucks shifting habits.

Just a recap I was having a lot of trouble with the reverse delay and erratic harsh shifting.

My dealer replaced the oil pump in the transmission which for the most part got rid of the reverse delay. I was told that this should also fix the harsh shifting issues, however, it didn't. I was growing really resentful of my truck and wishing I had my duramax back.

Now thanks to this forum I discovered the TSB on the shift flairs and presented this to my dealer. My truck clearly fell in the guidelines that warranted the solenoids be replaced although my dealer had never heard of it nor did my oasis report indicate that my truck needed it. Long story short the solenoids were replaced and the TCM was reset.

Ive had a few funky shifts in the first 100 miles since and only have a few hundred on it now but the truck is driving better than it ever has. I am hopeful that this was the solution to the problem.

Thanks for the great information. I would have without a doubt sold this truck and never bought another ford had this problem not have been resolved very soon (I am a GM guy but decided to give ford a shot since I wasn't a fan of the 07-14 GM interiors). I am finally falling in love with it and hope to keep it for several years.

I am a GM guy also but couldn't stand replacing front end parts all the time
on my 05 2500 HD ( hardly durable) so I went to Ford
now I wouldn't even consider an ugly GM truck at least My 05 looked good on the back flat bed tow truck

glad u got this resolved to bad you had to do all the legwork

I am at work right now on my phone so it's a little hard to dig up a link but there is a recent thread in the tranny problems forum with this tsb.

now why doesn't the dealership check the vin number and be able to pull up the build date to see that his truck fell into the TSB guidelines the first time he was there?
