That seems like a lot of parts and work. Why not just replace the entire transmission?

And what's wrong with the way Ford is manufacturing these transmissions? Aren't these identical in design to the 10 speed GM uses in light duty vehicles?

I guess I'm confused on the conditions for this TSB. I've said on this forum how much I hate that when I do a 3 point turn for example, that going from drive to reverse, especially on any road with a slope, can take several seconds before the transmissions actually goes into reverse. This is a pain in the rear if someone is waiting for you to complete your 3 point turn. Does that qualify for "delayed engagement or delayed shift"? Not that i really want my tranny broken into right now, seems like a lot of room for error and more issues. But I have never had a tranny related code.

The biggest known difference is GM adopts the stand alone transmission air cooler on Suburban/Tahoe, while cheap Ford only gives a transmission heat exchanger on Expeditions.

This left me stranded and I can’t believe this isn’t a recall. The conditions make it look like a harsh shift but mine slammed, slipped and as soon as I stopped for a stop sign the car locked itself into Park due to not enough transmission line pressure. And why this comes out in 2023 so many years later? Now to add further further frustration I’m looking at the repair order for when they fixed this and the updated part ending in B for the CDF drum wasn’t even used! Part ends in A which is the original design. These would be great trucks if Ford stood behind them. They must think customers are happy to clean up their bad first swing designs.

Would you please let me know when the transmission was repaired?

That’s a really good point about the trans temperature. I don’t hear of any GM’s having a CDF drum bushing slip problems. Either they are better quality controlling the parts, using a different supplier or simply running the trans cooler doesn’t let that drums aluminum section expand a lot so the steel sleeve doesn’t slip. I recently rented a 2022 Chevy Suburban with the same 10 speed and the trans never passed 160 degrees after hours of local and highway driving with the outside temp at 100-102 degrees.
