    Haven't seen one of these threads for a long time now - I thought all the auto box problems must have been ironed out by now?

    Wasn't the usual culprit coolant in the ATF, closely followed by not enough ATF?

    they keep information like the seals 'quiet' as they are done 'in service' and have never been done as an 'official recall' so you wouldn't have had any notification.. it's quite a common practice in the motor industry..

    if it's still coming up airflow fault, i take it they have checked for split breather hoses and any for of leak that can let unmetered air into the engine?
