Trans feels diff after JLT cai

I just installed my cold air intake yesterday and i don't know if its me being paranoid of something going wrong or if this has happened to some of you guys. Sometimes when i get on it, it wont downshift and doesnt downshift like it used to before i installed the cai. I drilled the hole before i installed it. But like i said i dont know if im being paranoid or what lol i did see somewhere that if i pull the #47 fuse or #42 itll reset something to help with the shift points. Can anyone help lol

A tune should take care of it, I'm pretty sure that's why AM sells a tuner with a CAI.

Did you disconnect the battery while you did the install?

It idles lower because there is more airflow. I've never had the downshift problems but you could try disconnecting your battery and see if it will reset it..

Probably that was my 3rd intake to put on in a week and I never felt anything. I thought it down shifted a little better, as long as it doesn't shift too hard you should be ok!

Check for air leaks, both around the throttle body and on the automatics there is another line going to the intake tube.

OK, don't shoot me for asking, but you said you drilled the hole before the install, so therefore I'm assuming you installed a JLT CAI. Did you also install the additional fitting and grommet in the hole per the instructions and reconnect the hose to it? This is from JLT's web site:

"AUTOMATIC OWNERS
Automatic cars need an additional fitting, which we provide. All you need to do is drill a ½” hole (we show you where) in the tube, install the supplied grommet, fitting and you’re done. Note, all kits sold to resellers will include the automatic fitting."

I'm thinking about getting a JLT CAI as well, so you have my curiosity on this. Also, it's fuse #47 that you pull out for at least 10 minutes to reset the system that learns your driving habits and shift style. Disconnecting the battery is always a smart thing to do when disconnecting and reconnecting electrical components. I would also make sure all your connection are secure and tight concerning the installation of the CAI.

The fitting is for automatics specifically, it's a must have and not needed for manual shift transmissions. Like I said, I would make sure all your connections are tight and secure. I'd also take a shot a driving it in sport mode for a test and see how your shifting is. This is the first that I've heard of this with an automatic and a JTL CAI having an issue. Let us know what you find out.

Since you're the 3rd owner of this CAI, how clean is the filter?

Well I hope you figure it out, your computer has to learn it too if you don't have a programmer so that might be it too.

Fair enough, but I gotta ask, why has this CAI been used so little? Usually you install it and leave it on. Man, I just love a mystery

OP already said the battery was not disconnected.

All that needs to be done is disconnect the negative battery terminal for 10/15 minutes and put it back on. Go for a drive and everything will be just fine.
