    I'm guessing I should take my pedal commander out before I take it in to the dealer. Question is how long after reflash should I wait to put it back in? Heard that the truck needs to learn your driving habits all over again. Just like when new

    They applied the update to mine and it didn't help. If it does not work, you should stay on it. They just granted me a buy back and I'm convinced the transmission was the major contribution. It was a 2017, 37k miles and in sport mode, the shift from 1-2 was so hard, it started overflowing fluid and overheating.

    Note, I got the same response from dealership first time. They said the update was F150 not considering that these are the same transmission.

    Also note that the transmission is programmed to run different cold. This was part of my issue. I had complaints when hot and they would test drive cold and not find anything.

    Good luck. BTW, did a new purchase on a 2019, and transmission runs great.

    good to hear, my shifts were never that hard, I think you may have had more than transmission issues, mine still holding strong.

    Does anyone else have an issue where the transmission will not down shift after coming to a stop? Occasionally mine will want to start from a complete stop in 4th gear. I have even seen it stay in 4th after shifting to Reverse and then back to Drive. My truck is a 2017 with 20K miles on it and it has had this problem on occasion since day 1. I even took it to the dealer last year and they did a "software reset" on it, but it still happens from time to time.

    Feel free to PM me your VINs... I work at a Ford dealership and have access to recalls specific to the VIN.
