Ford Dual Clutch Transaxle Diagnostic Case Study Video
Here is a case study I just finished, I hope this helps.
Great video, thank you. I've still yet to see one of these failed in the wild. If anyone is confused about where Bernie speaks about a rotating drum, that changes the gears, it is VERY similar to a regular sequential transmission/motorcycle transmission. See this short video for a brief explanation of the drum youtube.com/watch?v=IFjSVg…
Great Presentation as always Bernie Also be aware there are ISS raw data pids that could be used in conjunction with this process, but the monitoring of the amperage was very insightful.
excellent case study and video!!!.....thank you Bernie!
Great insight, I'd say I'll try and keep this in mind, but I will probably just pull up this video as it's very well done.
Both videos are great. Thanks. A question. Do these transmissions become reliable after a repair? I have a 2006 Focous that I believe is before the dual clutch trans. I really like the Focus and want a newer one but am wary of this trans. All I have heard is general bad stuff. I don't mind a repair if it upgrades and fixes the issues. I'm a heavy truck guy. Know very little about automotive…
Rex From my experience once the repairs are completed the transaxle seems to work well. However I am not an expert on these transmissions. Perhaps someone more qualified than I could give you a better answer.
They are what they are, The clutches can be temperamental at times with shudders under different driving conditions. The modules (TCM's) have a horrible track record, but most of the time the internals are good.
