08 Enclave CXL: I had the wave-plate repair a little less than 8K miles ago, and now have the delay-shifting-into-Drive problem. This afternoon, the transmission wouldn't shift out of first gear. Parked car for 10-15 minutes, then it ran fine. Had codes downloaded and TCM failure is logged.ENCLAVEDUDE said:NOT GOOD!!! My 2008 near 100k miles. Had wave plate fixed at 65k. Wonder if the ones with this delayed shift also had the transmission repaired for wave plate problem. So far after wave plate fix, the transmission has been fine. Hope others with this delayed shift problem will post their experience.
There must be more to this story than whats posted...Shop would not perform transmission fluid exchange? What did they see and why? How many miles on the Enclave?cab said:No transmission work done to date done prior to today, however, just went in for a transmission fluid exchange and the shop (that I trust) said the transmission was about to go and will need to be replaced/rebuilt and would not perform the fluid exchange. This is the worst vehicle I have ever owned. I wish I read more about the 2008 Enclave before purchasing. This is an absolute money pit, and has potential to be such an amazing vehicle. Very unfortunate. I feel for everyone experiencing this.
Buick dealer that did the wave-plate repair has me scheduled for drop-off next week. Said I will have to pay $120 diagnostic fee and see what they find. They have not examined the vehicle, other than reading the check-engine codes, which included the TCM code. Vehicle has 127K miles (wave-plate repair at 119 miles -- just within warranty).dzs3fz said:There must be more to this story than whats posted...Shop would not perform transmission fluid exchange?

Hi everyone, I wondering if anyone has this problem. My 08 enclave doesn't shift immediately when I shift into D, it delays like over sec or so then I can feel the vehicle makes some jerking movements (which is not common for this car) then I can drive away. Beside this delay the transmission works normal like the way it should, it doesn't happen in R, only when I shift from P into D. I when to the dealer to check for this and got informed that I have to replace the TCM ( Transmission control module ). My question is, do I really have to replace the TCM ( it costs $2000 to get it done ) or do I have an alternative option for this problem? btw the transmission had been rebuilt at around 65K miles... same problems like many have ... no reverse, wave plates fail, power steering problems... It has 93K miles now and warranty expired 3 month ago. :help: :help: :help:
