  • First issue at 22,400 miles

    My check engine light went on, I took the car to my dealer. They traced it to a line blockage in the transmission which may be related to a sticky solonoid. They have a bulletin on this. After the holiday they will flush the line, so far replacement of the solonoid is not recommended.

          I hope it will work out smoothly. BTW kudos to your build! 1LT no options. I was aiming for that too, but just had to have the Rapid Blue color… 1,890 bucks in options…. I gave in to the pressure haha

            Here is the service bulletin. Other C8's may encounter this issue as your mileage increases

              I've had that happen twice now. First time was no big deal. Second time I lost my even gears, but they came back about 5 miles later. They flushed all my solenoids this time and I had them change the trans filter since I'm close to the year mark. Hopefully, it doesn't happen again.

                I'm serial #2995. I just turned 10,000 miles. No DCT issues yet.

                  2022, DCT filter at 900 miles. Did the filter as a preventative move, did not change the fluid. I was very careful how I drove the car during break-in, lots of varied throttle. I have stirred the fluid to bring the contamination into view. Car has not exhibited any issues at all. I will likely do the fluid and the filter(again) at 2000 miles. Note what looks like brass colored powder in the fluid. Currently at 1300 miles and all is good.Click image for larger version  Name:	609E7A6E-CAAC-48E0-9059-28EBA3A4F0D4.jpg Views:	0 Size:	2.84 MB ID:	335986

                    Does anyone know the thread pitch/size of the DCT drain plug? I want to have a magnetic plug on hand for when I do the first fluid change.
