It does sound exactly like mine, though, and this is the thread I started for my DDCT woes, sooo... It's all good, though, I really hope the hydraulic control unit solves my problem. Also, I hope I can figure out how to replace it, since nobody seems to have any answers to my questions. I'm not entirely shocked, most people give up when the DDCT goes awry. It's definitely not an appropriate transmission for an entry-level value-driven compact sedan. It is much better suited to a car like the Alfa Romeo 4C (where it is just as unreliable, but even more fun).No that sounds completely different than what my Dart sounded like. It was more of a more pronounced squealing and then it finally later evolved into a sound like a belt was falling off in the engine with a lot of vibration and shaking of the entire vehicle. Sorry, but on the upside, it doesn't sound as bad as mine, so hopefully it won't be a major issue.
