    Poor trans shifting theory investigation

    So I learn a little something every day. Most of the magazines I read show the paddles being used on tracks and the like. Plus I had a friend that used them regularly in a fusion. Never thought about using it on a hill. I suppose if it were used sporadically it'd be fine but I don't have any experience with them in any other vehicle so my opinion doesn't carry much weight. In a nutshell it doesn't shift as smooth as I would expect when using the paddles. That would probably work fine for what you're doing. I work in the body shop at an assembly plant for Ford Motor Company and it really bothers me that they can't get the transmissions (in some vehicles) to work as well as anybody else's. If Kia can do it why can't we? 🙁

    So I tried the paddle shifting in sport mode and while it's a little funny, it's irrelevant to us as we don't ever use the paddles. If I want to shift for myself I have a 19 GT/CS with a 6-speed manual for that. 😁

    Ours is still good. No complaints. We have the June update.

    I believe the biggest issue with bucking and low throttle response is Ford has the transmission trying to stay in too high of a gear. The turbo trys to build boost and the computer opens the waste gate to prevent high boost at low RPMs. Then it does it again. And again till you push harder and it finally downshifts and the program allows higher boost as the engine is spinning faster. Our 2015 Ford Edge sport never had this issue as the RPMs never stayed that low. Guarantee some of the tuners eliminated this problem by keeping the RPMs up a little.

    I really wish they would put out a program for all edges with the 2 L turbo engine like they have for the ST. The one they came out with in June fixed 99.9 percent of people's cars (ST's) with this issue. If I were a betting man I'd say they're working on the same thing for the two liter. They had put out several other programs to try to fix it before this latest one so maybe they're trying to avoid that and go with a real fix once and for all. I work at Ford (build hoods, have nothing to do with this) and this embarrasses me. They make great vehicles but sometimes get in a rush releasing them or just don't put enough test miles on them. 🙁

    Yeah, I seen that. Not sure if they're doing anything about that transmission yet. I would think they are as there's quite a few people with issues. If I find out anything I'll post back.

    TSB 20-2190 issued in June '20 will likely fix most ST transmission issues that are software related. If you've not had this applied get it done. Tell them it is bucking and you have hard shifts and to apply TSB 20-2190.
  9. Same here. I'll get to it soon. I know with my Mustang the "new search" button when using USB is disabled while driving. It wasn't this way with 3.3..
  10. Everyone's getting it. It'll likely be available Monday or Tuesday.
  11. Just tried it for our 2019 ST and got "oops, something went wrong on our part". Installed it on my 2019 GT/CS this morning and it works good but.... during install it has to reboot 3x. On the 3rd time it'll tell you to remove the USB but will then go back to saying installing software update after it reboots. You have to remove it during that little window when it reboots or it'll get stuck in a loop and update / reboot for hours. Install time is only 30 minutes so go for a drive and remove it at the 3rd reboot. Otherwise I believe you can remove it at any of the reboots after that but I wouldn't just pull it when it says installing. Bet they're working on that and that's why it keeps saying oops. Should stop and prompt you to remove it and STAY on that prompt until you do.

    Ours has boost in all gears, at least according to the boost gauge.

    All I can say is my wife is finally satisfied with her ST. She hated it at first because of the transmission but now she's having the time of her life in it. To all those getting the TSB please give it a little time to ''settle in" as it resets the transmission learning tables.
