POWERTRAIN PRO

  • 2010 and up Ford Vehicles equipped with the 6F35 transaxle may suddenly exhibit a concern of a harsh application in reverse and or a harsh up-shift into third gear. 
  • Companies who rebuild torque converters will tell you the hundreds of times their converters are unjustly blamed for a problem. Anything from a no move condition to TCC shudder or slip.
  • Centerforce Clutches is keeping the art of the drive alive through the “Get Your Shift Together” video contest.

  • Getrag, the maker of several Powershift Dual Clutch transmissions both wet and dry, is beginning to show up for repairs outside of warranty. The most common of them is the wet clutch 6DCT470 in Mitsubishi’s Lancer EVO and Ralli-Art vehicles. Mitsubishi calls this its 6-speed W6DGA transmission, which it matched up with its 2.0L Turbo engine.
  • It is not unusual for a 2000-2004 Honda or Acura vehicle using a 5 speed 3 shaft style automatic transmission to come in to the shop with the third clutches destroyed. Many times rotational damage of the piston, return spring and spring retainer accompanies the third clutch burn out.
  • Raybestos Powertrain announces the next generation of the company’s website. The re-engineered site now provides the industry’s most robust parts search features, making it easier than ever for customers to find the exact transmission-related products they require.

  • Transfer clutch burn out is not uncommon with Subaru transmissions. Normal wear and tear, sealing ring failure or molded piston failure (especially with glycol intrusion) would be a few items on the list.
