Don't forget step 6) Hop around the car clockwise but only on one foot. Barking like a seal will also give you another 10 HP if done correctly. JKJK....Thanks for this tip P0201. Does this really work. Would love to hear others experience on this.Try this: Ver1 and Ver2
How to get rid of the heavy jolts and sluggish shifting
1) turn the start switch to on, but do not start the car. All trouble lights are on and the fans in the heating and cooling systems are on if that was the position they were left in.
2) push the gas pedal right to the floor and hold it there for 10-20 seconds.
3) turn the start switch to off with your foot still on the gas pedal.
4) release the gas pedal, but do not put your foot on the brake pedal
5) wait for 2 minutes before starting your car. Apparently the electronics are being reset
Do the procedure twice, it seems to work better
Go for a drive with moderate acceleration so that it shifts through most of the gears. It should feel like a new tranny.
I find I need to do this every 1000 kms
Same as version 1 but instead of putting ignition to START and then pushing the accelerator to the floor, push the accelerator to the floor and then turn the ignition to start then hold there for 10 to 20 secs.
This version seems to work better for my van and I only need to do it once per reset, which I do every 1000 kms.
If it wasn’t for this reset working for my van I think I would have traded it long ago. That clunking was really upsetting to say the least.
I now have 82000 kms on the clock. I have been doing this reset for almost 50000 kms
Its a bit of an inconvenience but it allows me to love this van.
