Yes on coded. Incorrect gear ratios for 5th and 6th. Also it went into limp mode, 1st and 4th gear only.

A little update. Dealer is pulling the trans to dig into it. They said that the power flush might have pushed something into a valve or something. Can't remember all they said. But that 5th and 6th have been damaged and they are going to be replacing them and anything else they find under warranty.

So, I'm a little confused. You said they "changed the fluid" and you got a "complete trans service including filter change", but then the dealer said "the power flush might have pushed something into a valve or something". When you drop the pan, drain the fluid and replace the filters you don't usually do a flush too, do you?

They did a flush to get the fluid out of the torque converter and anywhere else that just dropping the pan won't get. I wanted all the fluid out since I towed and it got to warm for my liking.

Did you tell the dealership that? They may be having you pay for some of this now knowing the trans got hot towing a load . It might not all be under warranty if you knew the trans got hot and kept going.

The exact reason I will never let anyone sell me a "flush". 2 trucks ,both flushed, lost trans within 500 miles of being done. I will never allow a flush on another vehicle I own.

Maybe I had poor luck but I will never chance it again.

I have stated in a post several months ago, my dealer WILL NOT do a flush,,reason given to me, QUOTE " "there is a possibility that a small piece of trash may end up in valve body ".........my old dad used to say if you want it all out,,change your oil and filter again in a few days, it's much safer and still cheaper than a flush at the dealer. He refused to buy the flush equipment for his service station on the advise of a friend. This was 25+ years ago, I sure do miss working there in high school, ,brings back memories.

I just changed my tranny fluid and both filters last month at 30,000 miles (I only use the truck for towing) just to be safe and I will likely change again around 50,000 or 60,000 and just keep changing fluid & filters rather than flush. Plus its something I can do myself

No of course not. It also didn't overheat just hotter than I like (220)

Just left the dealer. A spring clip on the front of what looked like the shaft broke off and one of the gears was completely burned. They took pics and sent it in to Chrysler to get it approved under warranty.
