They say, " little knowledge is dangerous", but here goes.
Yes, I just went through this on my 06 F430 with 6,300 miles. It started around 6,000. Please go to the General Discussion and see my post, "Need help and advice", or search up my posts.
It may be a bleed, drain of the F 1transmission and same for the actuator, then a recalibration. It could be the actuator. I was told by the dealer the actuator was about $6 grand plus labor. Mine related to a loose middle screw holding the actuator and a cracked block holding the unit, ($400 part).Labor, fluids, the part and recalibrating was Est at $1700. However, you will see in the thread other things arose in the course off the major check up and my total was a little change short of $9500, mostly sensors for the variators and service.
I am new to FL and have owned my car since 09-12. I hope I relayed this correctly. This was my similar experience and not to imply it is what is wrong with your cae.
