Question about 1996 Volkswagen Golf
I have 1996 VW polo 1.6 with automatic transmission. The car has 62,000 miles. When the first starting out the transmission does not want to shift out of 1st gear, and revs much higher than normally. When it does shift, it’s with a “bang”. If you ease off the accelerator a little, sometimes it will shift into 2nd with less of a hard transition. After a few miles when it warms up it doesn’t do this and then shifts ok. I added a can of Wynn’s transmission treatment, but it doesn’t seem to have helped. Any suggestions to prevent that hard shift?
