It will be FoMoCo full synthetic if they follow the TSB; to be reimbursed, they will.

Hey Bucko, you're pretty smart, if I put royal purple synthetic transmission oil in, will that void a warranty? Even though its above factory recommendation?

I have been experiencing grinding of my gears even when the clutch pedal is fully pressed... in all gears even reverse not to mention a weird feeling that some times as I try to move into a gear it feels like something id in the way like if the synchronizes are not working right. Would this tsb fix it? Not to mention at times it becomes difficult to shift into gear when accelerating to lets say as I am going to enter the expressway. All this happens when the vehicle is cold and even when it is fully warmed up and I live in south texas...

Ok so i took my car to ford this am to have the tsb done and they did drain the trans and filled it with the dual clutch fluid. I will say so far it goes into gear easier.

Well i got one of the mediocre transmissions that were halfway fixed between the outright failures of 2011, and the redesigned ones of late 2012, so mine is almost always notchy going into gear, especially in the cold.I have had the stock fluid (not the dual clutch tsb) till it got to be winter and was having problems, then I got the dual clutch fluid from the tsb and didn't notice a huge difference. A little while later I tried royal purple synchrmax and that was the worst of the fluids I have tried, right now I have bg sychroshift II and it feels similar to the tsb dual clutch fluid but not as good when it gets really cold but better when all the way warmed up.

So are they replacing the fluid on all 2012 due to recall? I'm confused lol

Take it to Ford bro. That's not normal. Sounds like your transmission isn't seated/installed correctly

Take it to a different dealer and contact the triple B. If they won't fix your problem, **** them over. Grinding is not normal, and I'm sure you already know that. Tell them that you're going to triple B about their ****ty customer service. I guarantee that they could fix your trans and Ford would pay...

Dude, it's the better business bureau. Print out a complaint form explaining what they did. If you wanna get tough, have a lawyer write it. Might cost you a hundred bucks, but if a lawyer signs it, and it's addressed to the triple B, they will play ball. I don't see why they wanna be dicks when Ford will pay...

Triple B shuts business's down... Owners are terrified of them.

They say that out of laziness. File a complaint, print it but don't submit it. Go to the dealership and show them your intentions... Or, best bet, submit a complaint and go elsewhere and let the know in casual conversation that you went with the triple B at another and they will follow their p's and q's...

For the record, the factory also switched to full synthetic since the TSB was issued.
Yes, TSB's are "silent" recalls, and no cost to you. If you have a symtom that is covered under a TSB, then the dealership does it free.
