Question about 2001 Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

Trans. slipping when i drive my 2001 passat glx it slips soon after you go about a mile. I can fix the problem by poutting it in park and turning it off and right back on but every time you do it the problem comes back sooner and sooner. It seems the warmer the car gets the worse the problem gets. The car has only 95000 miles on it. What do you think it could be?

First change transmission fluid and filter if not done in the last 30K miles.  The transmission fluid breaks down after much time/many miles.  This is the least expensive thing that you can do that may fix your problem.   Hope this is it, since ANYthing else to solve this is going to be expensive.
See http://www.blauparts.com/vw/vw_fluid/vw_automatic_transmission_fluid.shtml for DIY,  this site has good prices on OEM VW and Audi parts,  very reputable.

2004 After about a mile of road travel, why does transmission begin to slip?


Usually a transmission slipping isn't due to the drive shaft, but the transmission itself. I know this might sound a like a crazy question, but have you checked the transmission fluid levels, could be a leak, if not full would cause slippage.

Trans slipping in to 2nd... possible linkage assembly?


I'm sorry ---but any transmission that is slipping usually
has been doing so longer than you recognized it

The only fix is a complete rebuild when the slip

Slipping is from not changing the fluid every 3 years or
30,000 miles. It breaks down from the heat & so goes
your clutches & the slipping begins. Not a secret,it is
pretty well know fact of the last 55 years or so

One fluid change in 120,000 miles & your near the end
of a trans life expectancy,some keep going,not many

On the yearly side,you can go 3 years or 18 years,
seldom without fresh fluid & very gentle driving habits

I believe yours is electronic & no cable to adjust
You can look next to the throttle but you'll never get
that spot that will stop slipping

Change the fluid now & it will slip for sure

No additives ever go into a trans,just the correct fluid

I bought a 2001 honda odessey with 73000 miles the transmission gave up. i have it rebuild now it is 83000 miles transmission starting to slip


No transaxles make 100,000 miles

What your saying, including the rebuild
is common

Asian transaxles & all Van type vehicles,
are something you don't want to own

I used to own a trans shop,so I will leave
you with that

Can't fix slipping,drive a couple of days,
& your pulling the trans out again

These are common symptoms and usually mean the worse.IT is possible you have a bad pressure control solenoid but this is rare.I would start with pulling codes if any are present.Good Luck.

Trans just started slipping 2002 Dodge Stratus with 54000 miles no signs of problems before do you check trans level in park or drive?


You allways check the transmission fluid level in car after the car has a few minutes to worm up. If you have not had the transmission fluid and filter change in a long time then you need to do it. The fluid and filter should be changed every 30,000 miles to keep you from having problems. Hope this will help you.

I have a 1996 pontiac grand am the trans shifts fine in all gears but wont move seems to be stuck into park i can feel it going into gear and tries to move and trans isnt slipping it is a automatic when...


Tip on end of park rod has slipped and is staying in the park position. Put car in neutral and get out and rock car back and forth by hand. Tip will slip out and car should move. This will not fix the tip problem as they are crimped on and the crimp has slipped. I installed a master electrical switch and never put the trans in park. I start and stop car in neutral and use switch to shut of electrical. Costs $ 800 to fix trans as park rod is last item out of trans. Cheap solution for me as car is a beater and am driving until it quits. Best of luck.

2001 Jeep Grand Char., trans slips when making left turn only , 144000 miles, filter and fluid was changed


theres not much you can do about a slipping trans. its probly more noticable when you turn left because your left rear wheel is your primary drive wheel, it takes more force to move your car from the inside corner than the outside. be gentle on it and it may last you a while
