My tranmission was shifting hard and trying to run hot so i changed filter and fluid.now its not doin that it slipping and stalls at low rpm's.is that my torque converter or sensors bad?


You may need the transmission rebuilt, once it starts to slip that is the end in mist cases. Have a local transmission repair shop confirm my guess on this

Engine starts, run but shuts down


I can't quite tell if you mean the engine runs but with very little power, or if there is power but the transmission is slipping?

If the power is failing, then the question is when does it happen?
Is it temperature related, only happens at high speed, or is it only after a period of driving fast? If so, it could be a temperature sensor, the fuel pump or filter, or it could be the air mass sensor being coated with foam from the PVC valve, or it could be a plugged catalytic converter.
Do the engine lights come on or any other indicator?

If the engine has power but transmission slips, then check the ATF (automatic tranmission fluid) to see if it is low or burned smelling, or dark. If it is, then either fill or change it, and have it checked by a tranmission specialist.

My 96 jetta 3 is automatic but takes off in second any solutions


The transmisssion in this car is computer shifted, have you had it tested for fault codes to explain this problem? Aamco Tranmission shops do this testing for free. I suggest you get the system tested as the 1st step in understanding the cause of the problem.

Transmission is slipping


once the tranmission starts slipping that is the end of the useable life for the tranmission, u will need an overhaul, sorry there is no repair other than that for slipping conditions.

TRANMISSION IS SLIPPING WHEN DRIVING


Anytime an automatic transmission is slipping, you're looking at a replacement or overhaul. There are products that say that they'll help, but ultimately, if they do, it's only a temporary, and your transmission will fail just as soon. The slippage is caused from a worn band in the transmission...it's kinda like a set of brakes; they grab onto a planetary gear system, and once that band wears out, your transmission slips. Find a reputable place for a rebuilt unit that will change it reasonably

I have an automatic trans mission that doesnt go


The forward gears slip but dose the reversr gear slip as well if not your problem is either the forward band is worn out ,,,,or the forward pump is playing up and also it could be the thing that starts it all off is the filter in the auto sump is clogged up with metal or drive band dust is the colour of the auto oil dark or dirty..
When was the trans oil last changed.
