did you have the trans recalls / campaigns performed

I ran my vin and no recalls were found. Chevy does have a recall for them but not for mine apparently. I heard resetting the computer and tcm helps and will make the car relearn

My car isn't listed under any of those recalls
Expert:  JOHN aka Eauto replied 1 year ago.

that's odd I would have the dealer pull up the vin and verify and start with a reflash or update on the tcm
