2001 Jetta TDI Automatic Transmission problem

The problem is when I stop like at a light then start go again it seems to be in neutral then drop hard back into gear.
I doesn't do it all the time. If I play with the break and gas pedal it doesn't do it, Or if I come off the highway or a long drive it doesn't do it either.
The Dealer justs wants to replace it. It has had a fluid and filter change by the dealer every 30K and it only has 121K on it. Fluid is VERY clean.
Please give me some direction.

    I have a jetta tdi 2001 - 130K miles automatic transmission... same problem, at a stop the car will roll back when i take my foot off the break - even as i give it gas - it is like the engine is not in gear. Also, it seems to 'slip' between 2nd and 3rd gear... rpms will go up but no acceleration then a hard shift...



    what is the problem??? help!!

    2001 TDI Jetta

    140,000 KM

    Automatic transmission

    When I come to a stop light, the car goes into neutral, so when you apply the gas to restart, the transmission kicks in with quit a clunk. Right now, I have to rev the engine slightly to get the transmission to engage smoothly. The transmission fluid and filter have been replaced recently.

    What to do?

    Hello there I have a 2000 Golf that does the same thing, come to a stop and it seams to drop out of gear. Once you rev it up to about 1100RPM it seems to pop back into gear and works fine otherwise. It does not do this at every stop sometimes it works fine and sometimes it dosnt. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks

2001 wv jetta tdi automatic transmission trouble diagnostics


My brother has one of these and his mechanic tried the quick fix for $1,000. Lasted 2 weeks. He wanted nearly $4000 more for rebuilt unit installed, so brother sold him the car cheap. (reliable mechanic for last 13 years and 6 cars.) How many miles on yours?

2001 jetta automatic transmission does not down shift or shift into overdrive


Once again, not enough information given. How many miles on unit? When you say does not downshift do you mean when you press hard on accelerator pedal, or when you slow down? When you say does not shift into overdrive do you mean high gear or torque converter does not lock? The cars are know for transmission problems and while sometimes you get lucky, usually they require a rebuild or replacement. How often do you replace the fluid and filter?

2002 jetta tdi rebuilt transmission .While on test drive started loosing power ..lots of black smoke ..ECL code p1556


have you tried at all to reset the program of the automatic transmission ? Always remember that even a simple connector been removed for second and re connected always needs adaptation before starting the car VW. Try to do the automatic transmission with adaptation.

THE 5 SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

At the bottom of the automatic gearbox (tiptronic) you will find one threaded plug on below surface, (follow red arrow in the picture below). This is for emptying.

The oil level threaded plug is placed on the car front lateral automatic gearbox surface, (follow yellow arrow in the picture below).

The filling oil plug is placed on the upper automatic gearbox surface, (follow green arrow in the picture below).

Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) checking:
1. Requirements for check:
1.1. Vehicle standing on level surface.
1.2. Transmission must not be in fail-safe mode.
1.3. Shift lever in "P" position, parking brake applied.
1.4. Engine idling.
1.5. Air Conditioner and heater OFF.
1.6. ATF temperature must not exceed 104 Fahrenheit degree (40 Celsius degree) at start of test.
1.7. Automatic gearbox oil capacity: 2,5 liter. Only ATF with VW designation may be used. Do not use any lubricant additives.
1.8. Automatic Transmission Fluid ATF - part number: VW G 052 990 A2
1.9. An ATF level check when transmission oil temperature is too low results in overfilling, when too high results in underfilling.
2. CAUTION: Too much or too little ATF will affect the operation of the transmission. The ATF level must be checked at regular intervals.

I am looking for the reverse light switch on my 2002 TDI with an automatic transmission. I have looked at several posting, but they all seem to be standard transmissions. Any idea when it is located on...


Hi, I think the reverse switch is integral to the park/neutral switch. I'm looking at that switch, and it has too many pins for a plain park/neutral switch. See below.
