Question about 1996 Volkswagen Passat
Runs great drives really slow and wont go up a hill to save anyones life. When started from a cold start seems to drive better than any other time for about a minute or two. Then when the cars has gone about 3 miles it is hard to get it to go at all and it takes along time about (15-20 seconds) to get up to about 25-35mph all the whille slipping in and out of gear, while the engine revs. I just took it to a shop which said the tranny needs to be rebuilt or replaced, but i was also told by someone else that just by replacing the filter and fluid sometimes that will help or fix the slipage. Thanks for your help has anyone else had this problem... please post oh and its an automatic
I have the exact same problem like you i just had mine in the shop for the full tune up,including the transmision oil,filter,gasket ect...i've been told to put some automatic transmision conditioner which helped a bit but it was still the same thing. i've been told it's some kinda clutches inside the tranny that are worn down im getting my tranny replaced btw mine's automatic just like yours
