TSB Rough engagement into drive/reverse 2007-10 A/T
Found the following TSB when researching the rough engagement I sometimes get when putting my 08 into drive or reverse. It always has done it so I figured it's just a peculiarity of the drive train. It is, because it's a ECU controlled aspect to begin with and may be fixable.
So for now I'm just going to post up this TSB in case anyone else is researching this issue. I can't seem to get a day off of work save for Sunday so I can't verify anything yet.
