Re: gearbox sometimes take a while to go into drive
If it is hard to shift when the vehicle is cold chances are that the oil in the gear box is too thick take it to a shop and try using a thinner oil than what is in the gear box and this will eradicae your problem

you need to get the fault codes out of the engine control module and the transmission control module ie ecm and tcm with a eobd fault code reader to help sort this one . common probs are faulty jatco auto gearbox (rubbissh gearbox) poss engine managment sensor failures or even a broken/corroded wire or connector, good luck,.
Is it a full auto box or auto with manual selection. Full auto has only 1,2,D,R. If its full auto take it to a regular tyre/exhaust place and ask them to help.
The vw and audi auto gearboxes that also have selectable manual gears are only reliable when they have the correct clean oil in them.
The oil is special and expensive, and you must only use the oil from VW. If you havent changed the gearbox oil, get it done. Its much cheaper as a first step, compared to taking the gearbox apart to check for wear or damage.
hi this problem is caused by a geatbox fault , something is causing the fault code to bring on your warning lights , in this mode the gearbox locks up and the tourqe converter takes up the drive , when you drive of it feels like you only have 3 gear , change the oil and filter in the box and make sure you have the correct level of oil in the box , very important , td5 auto 192k
Significa "FALLA EN LA CAJA DE CAMBIOS Y DEL MOTOR" si cambiaste la bateria es muy probable que no le hicieron un respaldo, no se puede desconectar al 100% la bateria, normalmente de corrije sola esa falla, si no acude con algun mecanico que tenga scanner y te reset la falla, la otra falla posible es el sensor de oxigeno, apaga el auto completamente y espera un minuto y reintenta, si la falla sigue puede ser cualquiera de las 2 que te dije, suerte!

Sorry to break the bad new to you, put you most likely need a transmission depending on what codes are stored in the system. I have dont numerous automatic transmission on x-types all they all started with a gear box fault light on.
If the codes have something to do with a incorrect gear ration that is a guarantee red flag for a new transmission
