Default 2008 Edge issue

As stated in the title, I've got an 08 Edge and intermittently, it only happens after idling for a period of time, it feels as though the transmission is slipping. When taking off from a stop the engine revs abnormally high and obviously accelerates abnormally slow. Along with this the trans shifts up and down erratically and rather hard. The only thing that is really throwing me off about the issue is that the problem is resolved by simply turning the vehicle off and starting it back up. It doesn't need to sit for any period of time to fix the issue. Immediately it drives as normal. Are there any Ford techs that have seen this with the first generation Edge models? My wife took it to Ford while I was in boot camp, but they either did not understand the problem or could not replicate the issue so nothing could be diagnosed. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Would have to see it to diagnose it... I am not aware of any common issues.

To me it seems more PCM issue than mechanical. Have there been any PCM updates for transmissions on these?

There are a lot of people having similar issues. The fix is to reflash the ecm. My ex's car was doing the same thing and that's what fixed it.

So do I just need to talk to a Service Advisor about the reflash or is this something that they will have to diagnose before they can confirm?

I'd have them do a diagnostic on the ecm first just to make sure
