If you experience hard shifting or a delay in shifting, this may be caused by outdated transmission control module software. Updated software is available that may correct shifting issues.
The automatic transmission may develop a problem with gear slippage because of worn clutch packs inside the transmission. Overhaul or replacement of the transmission will be necessary to correct this issue.
A hydraulic valve lifter "tick" type noise may be noted at high engine speed. This commonly caused by lack of oil to the lifters. Our technicians recommend following the recommended oil service intervals to help prevent this problem.
