2011 escape 4cyl hard downshift solved

thought I would post something good . I have a 2011 4cyl ford escape with 50k miles . I had a sometimes hard downshift when slowing down at a light or traffic .It happened at about 25 to 20 miles per hour. but it was not consistent as it was occasional and not always happening. A hard thunk in the shift. as it was under the 60,000 mile drive train warranty I took in to a ford dealer . I first asked about any TB's regarding shift problems and after a little hesitation on their part they printed out some items .a couple had to do with reprogramming the pcm on 2011 models .I gave them the car and thats what they did ,reprogram the module under warranty and after 700 miles of driving the car it has not hard shifted once.so we had a good result and an easy fix for a change.............cheers

Good to hear!

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
