Did they apply any new TSB (PCM update)?TC replaced with new factory unit at 130K, Acura picked up a portion of the bill. Cost me $1,700. Now 30K and 18 mos. later at 160K making the classic 35mph shutter/rumble, they are saying no help.
Talked to customer service supervisor she says too old. I said 30K on a factory new TC is not acceptable....... Any suggestions?????
How did you get them to cover 75%?List model year. 2004
Date/Mileage of failure. 6/20/11 - 137,000
Current mileage. 138,000
Symptoms. Whirring noise around 25mph with fluctuating rpm
Corrective action. Dealer replacing TC next week.
Current status of trans. How does it feel? TBD
And cost, if any or $0. $0 - Acura covering 75%
Warranty, if you received one. TBD
Did the update fix the shudder? It might of been a glitch.2005 99,000 miles
had the shudder problem, too, but received letter from acura and had tranny software updated at dealer at no cost. However, tonight the D5 light started blinking but reset it self after turning car off and then restarting. Major issue or maybe just a glitch?
what year? The TSB is only for the 05 and 06 years I believe. My 04 has been doing the rumble for the last 10k miles (188k now). I just drive in d4 and manually put the car in d5 on the highway. See how long I can make it last.124,500 miles. Just began to notice the growl in 5th at very low speeds. Not sure taking it to the dealer will help, as it is clearly out of all warranty.
If I were to take it to the dealer, what should I ask for? A TSB and update?
Any recommended next steps?
thats what ive been doing ever since i had my tc replaced on my 05 at 47000 miles. im at 97000 miles now with no issues, knock on woodwhat year? The TSB is only for the 05 and 06 years I believe. My 04 has been doing the rumble for the last 10k miles (188k now). I just drive in d4 and manually put the car in d5 on the highway. See how long I can make it last.
It's doing it again on the new converter. I haven't extensively tested it but I felt it and my wife said it was doing it as well. Gonna do spark plugs first and then see if their latest program fixes it. Anyone have any luck getting them to replace one that had already had an issue and been replaced under warranty? There is an out of warranty "goodwill consideration" section on the service bulletin, hoping they come good on it or I will be a bit frustrated.List model year. 2006
Date/Mileage of failure. 55k ish
Current mileage. 66k
Symptoms. driving 30-45mph with very light throttle, intermittent chugging sound like it was missing on one cylinder, rpm's pick up a couple hundred due to slippage each time. Worse when cold, not as noticeable when warmed up.
Corrective action. Reading this site and then going to start calling dealers
Current status of trans. How does it feel? Trans seems to work fine except for TC problem.
And cost, if any or $0.
Warranty, if you received one. Was certified used so assuming warranty will cover it.
