Throttle PositionsEngine Braking

A condition where the engine is used to slow the vehicle bymanually downshifting during a zero throttle coastdown.

Full Throttle Downshift

A quick apply of the accelerator pedal to its full travel,forcing a downshift.

Heavy Throttle

Approximately 3/4 of accelerator pedal travel,75-percent throttle position.

Light Throttle

Approximately 1/4 of accelerator pedal travel,25-percent throttle position.

Medium Throttle

Approximately 1/2 of accelerator pedal travel,50-percent throttle position.

Minimum Throttle

The least amount of throttle opening required for anupshift.

Wide Open Throttle (WOT)

Full travel of the accelerator pedal, 100-percentthrottle position.

Zero Throttle Coastdown

A full release of the accelerator pedal while the vehicle isin motion and in drive range.

Shift Condition DefinitionsBump

A sudden and forceful apply of a clutch or a band.

Chuggle

A bucking or jerking. This condition may be most noticeablewhen the converter clutch is engaged. It is similar to the feel oftowing a trailer.

Delayed

A condition where a shift is expected but does not occur fora period of time. This could be described as a clutch or bandengagement that does not occur as quickly as expected during a partthrottle or wide open throttle apply of the accelerator, or duringmanual downshifting to a lower range. This term is also defined asLATE or EXTENDED.

Double Bump – Double Feel

Two sudden and forceful applies of a clutch or a band.

Early

A condition where the shift occurs before the car has reachedproper speed. This condition tends to labor the engine after theupshift.

End Bump

A firmer feel at the end of a shift than at the start of theshift. This is also defined as END FEEL or SLIP BUMP.

Firm

A noticeably quick apply of a clutch or band that isconsidered normal with a medium to heavy throttle. This applyshould not be confused with HARSH or ROUGH.

Flare

A quick increase in engine RPM along with a momentary loss oftorque. This most generally occurs during a shift. This conditionis also defined as SLIPPING.

Harsh – Rough

A more noticeable apply of a clutch or band than FIRM. Thiscondition is considered undesirable at any throttleposition.

Hunting

A repeating quick series of upshifts and downshifts thatcauses a noticeable change in engine RPM, such as a4–3–4 shift pattern. This condition is alsodefined as BUSYNESS.

Initial Feel

A distinctly firmer feel at the start of a shift than at thefinish of the shift.

Late

A shift that occurs when the engine RPM is higher than normalfor a given amount of throttle.

Shudder

A repeating jerking condition similar to CHUGGLE but moresevere and rapid. This condition may be most noticeable duringcertain ranges of vehicle speed.

Slipping

A noticeable increase in engine RPM without a vehicle speedincrease. A slip usually occurs during or after initial clutch orband apply.

Soft

A slow, almost unnoticeable clutch or band apply with verylittle shift feel.

Surge

A repeating engine related condition of acceleration anddeceleration that is less intense than CHUGGLE.

Tie-Up

A condition where two opposing clutch and/or bands areattempting to apply at the same time causing the engine to laborwith a noticeable loss of engine RPM.

Noise ConditionsDrive Link Noise

A whine or growl that increases or fades with vehicle speed,and is most noticeable under a light throttle acceleration. It mayalso be noticeable in PARK or NEUTRAL operating ranges with thevehicle stationary.

Final Drive Noise

A hum related to vehicle speed which is most noticeable undera light throttle acceleration.

Planetary Gear Noise

A whine related to vehicle speed, which is most noticeable inFIRST gear, SECOND gear, FOURTH gear or REVERSE. The condition maybecome less noticeable, or go away, after an upshift.

Pump Noise

A high pitched whine that increases in intensity with engineRPM. This condition may also be noticeable in all operating rangeswith the vehicle stationary or moving.

Torque Converter Noise

A whine usually noticed when a vehicle is stopped, and thetransmission is in DRIVE or REVERSE. The noise will increase withengine RPM.

Driver Shift Control

Driver shift control-(DSC) allows the driver tochange gears similar to a manual transmission. Refer to the vehicleowner's manual for specific DSC operating instructions.
