My uncle owns a LS8 and is complaining about the hesitation of the transmission. I have read numerous complaints about this problem and it looks like Ford/Lincoln is not doing anything to remedy it.

I was wondering if anyone has any tips/solutions to fix this. I was thinking of a Peformance Chip and/or a Shift Kit. Not sure who makes them for this car.

LS Transmission

You should make sure that your uncle has the latest re-flash for his transmission. I know that this has been a problem in the past, but the latest re-flash makes a world of difference. The TSB for the re-flash is 01-01-05.

Like I said before, the re-flash makes a huge change in performance of the transmission.

Your uncle might want to keep an eye on the LS Club web site at, http// They generally do a great job keeping the LS enthusiasts informed.
