Hi Gerry, very busy sunday for me around the house!!
I took the truck for a ride and did what u told me and here what I found out:
the kickdown is still available in aut. reg. mode and in sport too.
tried it in sport first, drives perfect, all gears change the way they supposed to, and in manual same thing, all of them work up and down, then I tried it in reg. aut. mode and it drove really nice too, but the whole drive was around 10 miles, hopefully this will help you(and me) sort the problem out
one more thing, I thought these transmissions should have a lifetime oil, I thought I read that in the manual, u know better, I am waiting for ur reply on fire!
I can't thank u enough man!
