The hard shifting or clunk is on a different TSB. 355 is for the shuddering.

I had the 8L45, too, and it did exhibit a perceptible clunk on the 3->1 shift, but only on an incline, almost never on a flat road.

The same downshift is buttery smooth on the 8L90 I run now, which makes me think this is likely a tune issue, as the lurchy downshifts in my previous trans weren't at any significant power. (My trans is tuned, but this was just the same when stock.)

18-NA-355 is for a completely different problem, so this TSB won't help you. I would ask the dealership to put the trans into relearn mode and see if it goes away and comes back again, which would point even stronger to a tune issue.

Repeated flushing with the old fluid on my 2016 2SS in January @32k miles lasted about 10 months @45k miles. In October, the 1st flush of the new fluid failed and the shudder came back much worse.

The dealer flushed it a 2nd time with the new fluid and the problem is improved. At this time, I don't think the problem is completely resolved as it feels like there is a slight underlying vibration/wobble at highway speeds.

If you have a car that’s out of warranty, like I do. You have to pay for the flush out of your own pocket? Even though Chevy knows that this is a factory issue. 2016 A8 2SS second owner. I’m sure it’s the reason why the first owner dumped the car. Has anyone experienced any shudder issue after getting the latest TSB 28-NA-355 done?

Mine has been good so far. Had it done about 2000 miles ago. Not sure about the payment thing, I was still under warranty.

Are warranty’s transferable to the second owner?

This is a powertrain issue, covered for 5 years or 60,000 miles. If you have a higher mileage, that's a problem, I think in this case you will need to pay for the flush and, if it doesn't help because the torque converter is already damaged past the point of no return, for TC replacement. Yes, it sucks that GM kept punting this and you may have run out of warranty in the meantime.

I haven't heard of any single case when the flush with the new Jan 2019 fluid + potential TC replacement wouldn't resolve the issue.

If I were you, I'd bite the bullet and tell the dealership to fix it no matter what, you will lose more by getting rid of the car and buying another Camaro or something else.

Manufacturer warranties are on the car, not the owner (so yes, you have whatever is left of each original warranty coverage item).

I had the same clunk in my 8L45. It started after the shudder got worse and went away after this latest flush. I don't believe it's a actual shift clunk but possibly the torque converter unlocking coming to a stop due to damage from the shudder.

Makes sense, especially since it wasn't consistent. That car is gone anyway, the 8L90 in my SS is stout and shifts even better since it got tuned. AFM is disabled in the tune. Finally, the trans is on the latest fluid.

Desperate times requiring desperate measures, heh , but honestly, while these extremes should never have been necessary, I can't complain about trans performance.
Oh, and to the forums
