Interesting, can the loaded valve body assembly be replaced without having to reflash the PCM?
Without reflash the PCM it will take along time to start shifting smoothly, and in some cases the problem will stay as it is.

I'd clear the KAM, which would force it to relearn everything, but does the valve body have to be flashed into the PCM for it to even work? I know some of the components require the PCM to be flashed for them to even operate.

This is hard question to me. May some friends answer it.

You can replace just the valve body without reprogramming the PCM if you swap the old TCM onto the new valve body. The rebuilt Mechatronic assemblies come without the TCM.
The original TCM is programmed with the PCM already.


That's what I did on mine and it works fine.

That's exactly what I was thinking and wanted to know! For $300 and a few hours of my labor I might have to try this and see if it fixes a few of my minor issues.
