Also to those who may be having idling problems (rough,surging) this may be due to carbon build up and there is a TSB for that.I used Lucas cylinder and switched to Mobile 89 octane gas a...

PCM/TCM Software Updates May Address Shifting Problems

If you experience rough shift and/or shuddering during gear shifting, software updates to the powertrain control and transmission control modules (PCM and TCM) are available which may address these problems.
