mike86 - if you've had no luck, take the TFI-IV module in to be tested an at auto parts store, along with a hair drier to heat it up. Or run some diagnostic codes, sometimes you can get hints that would point to a TFI on the fritz, or the problem/code could be stored in memory.

Skadoo - Run a KOER test when the engine is warm.
