A TSB is just a common problem. The fact that its a bad seal I highly doubt its covered under war. You can call service to find out for sure. If the computer needs an update it may be covered

How to replace rear main seal on an 2006 audi a6 sline?


the first thing is to determine exactly where the oil is coming from. If it is a sump gasket at the rear main area it will be easier to do that than pulling the transmission and flywheel to do it (if it is not the main seal) Next is it gear oil - reddish or if manual smells different to engine oil. IT auto and is reddish it may be an oil cooler line or a front seal in the torque converter. I am saying that if it is a rear main seal it will be a big job so make sure before you get involved.

Just my Service engine soon light is on for the second time and the code shows Torque Converter CKT Performance or stuck


The lockup function in the Torque converter is not functioning correctly. Your RPM's rise when you come out of Overdrive. Do you have the button in the shifter that turns ON/OFF the Overdrive? You don;t get it at startup since you can't go into O/D till the engine is warmed up-bet as soon as you go into closed loop mode (when the O/D can work)-the light starts. Hopefully it's electrical outside the trans-if it's the converter itself-the trans has to be opened. Check TSB on this problem. Ut has to do with a transmission oil pump defect and repair procedure.

ISSUE:
Some vehicles may experience excessive torque converter slippage, torque converter not engaging, or Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) 628 or P0714 stored in memory. This may be caused by damage to the fluid pump support seal and/or to the groove on the pump where the seal is located.


ACTION:
Inspect the fluid pump seal for damage. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.


SERVICE PROCEDURE:
  1. Follow normal diagnostic procedures as listed in the appropriate Service Manual.
  2. Inspect the fluid pump support for damage. If damaged, also inspect the fluid pump support seal groove on the pump.
  3. If the groove is damaged, replace the pump.
  4. If the groove is not damaged, replace the fluid pump support seal with a redesigned Seal (F77Z-7L323-AA). Refer to Figure 1.
  5. Do not replace the torque converter unless it is damaged or fails the criteria listed in the appropriate Service Manual and/or refer to TSB 96-26-12.

This is something I recommend having a Ford Dealer do since they have the experience with the job.

When I start to drive my ford explorer the over drive light O/D come on and start to flashing. How I can fix the problem?


he overdrive off light flashing indicates that a problem with your
transmission has been detected. Take it to the dealer or a transmission
shop and get it checked out. If you continue to drive the Explorer with
the O/D OFF light flashing you can possibly damage the transmission.


Ford has issued a TSB on this problem. Has to do with a transmission oil pump defect and repair procedure.

02 ford explorer scan tool shows code p0741 whats the fix for that code


Without diagnosing this problem i can only take a good guess, the po741 on this ford is related to the tcc, this is the torque converter clutch, the converter clutch seliniod may be bad, you will need to test it and omh it and check for shorts or open circuit in the seliniod.

More than likely the fuel pump. This may sound stupid but take something and give your gas tank a bit of a thump. What year is the car?
