Are the issues occurring even in colder (winter temps) or only when it's warm out, or when stuck in traffic? Have you relocated the SMG pump?

yes. the current smg issue happens during cold or warm days. it's either a starting issue or engaging in gear after starting. but once the car starts, the issue seems to be gone. it only occurs during morning starts.

since having this issue i've changed the gps and compression spring. currently the fault codes are pointing towards a bad electric motor.

i'm currently in talks with burkhart. i'll read the fault codes right when i cant start the car and will report burkhart. initially that had thought it was the valve body seals, but the pressure tests shows my smg can old pressure.

Btw, after you changed your smg motor and accumulator how many miles did you get before you got the cog light again
