Condition Some customers may comment that the transmission has developed a harsh shift. This harsh shift condition will have developed over mileage accumulation. In many instances the transmission has not had any previous repairs performed. There may be more than one shift that is harsh and may be grouped as follows:

  • 1-2, 5-6 and 7-8
  • 3-4 and Park or Neutral to Reverse
  • 6-7 and 3-1

Check the julian date of the transmission by reviewing the TUN number on the side of the transmission. Transmissions built between July 1, 2015 (julian date 182) and Sept 14, 2015 (julian date 257) may have a suspect Clutch Control Solenoid.
TUN decoder See example below:

  • Third and Forth digit – Calendar Year – “15”
  • Fifth, Sixth and Seventh digits – day transmission was produced – “241”
  • This transmission was produced on August 29, 2015
If the transmission julian date is between 182 and 257 the valve body should be replaced.
