Wicked Wrench :

Hey! Need a little more info on this. Is it an E gear trans or Manual? And which lines did you replace? Are they clutch master/slave lines, trans cooler lines??? I'll help you out, just gotta get pointed in the right direction.

JACUSTOMER-86n3iwca- :

F1 transmission is an automatic transmission with Paddle shifters if auto mode is not chosen.

JACUSTOMER-86n3iwca- :

i replaced all the 5 Hydraulic lines. there is no clutch master/slave lines that i know. not transmission cooler lines either.

JACUSTOMER-86n3iwca- :

so it is an E gear trans.

what does the trans do if you pull both paddles back and put your foot on the brake?

did you label the lines when you took them apart? are we sure they are in the same places as before?
Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

Yes. i did label all 5 lines along with the electrical connectors to the magnetic actuators.

Auto Mechanic: greasemonkey2386, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 years ago

when you open the door, do you hear the pump run? i wonder if you dont have air in the lines
Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

the pump runs with the opening of the door. I bled all three lines except I don't know if there is a special sequence to bleeding the lines.

Auto Mechanic: greasemonkey2386, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 years ago
there is a purge valve located about 8 inches in front of the reservoir that needs to be opened as well

So i'm not really sure what happened here, but after researching your issues, it sounds like you may have a few things going on. I found this article, & it may be worth a look. It is quite lengthly, but all answers point to the adjustment of the clutch & actuators, as well as complete replacement of the F1 assembly. Please give it a look, & get back to me with your thoughts.

Do you have a diagnostic interface to read live data from the ECU's? Also, Are there any service lights or warning lights on?
