The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

Get under the car and undo the selector on the side and see if you can select it by hand and if so its the adjustment needs to be moved or theres something stopping it going all the way home .
So check it out and let me know. Ron

Hi there, I own a 2000 4 motion v6 passat tiptronic. last year october as i pulled away the car did the same thing showing negative on the dash and left me next to the road. through endless troubles i finally got it to a person who can "fix it". 6 months later after guarantee it left me next to the road. The first "fix cost me $1500.00. I love this car but I was **********. 3 weeks ago the car went in and I got the quotation of another $ 1850.00. the previous guy messed up. there is a pressure bowl that shifts to and fro. this gets worn out and burns the clutches wich puts it into a freeze mode so no further damage could be done. What I'm saying, get a good gearbox tech that gives at least a year guarantee. well that's all i've learned through this mess. good luck.

How do I fix it.do I have to lubricate somewhere?


The problem is that by driving in 4wd on hard surface you experience what is known as torque wind up in the transmission, transfer case and drive lines. This loads up the gears so an actuator cannot move a selection until the torque wind up is reduced (reverse or shunt back)
IT is not a problem if you are on slippery roads , gravel, grass or any surface where the tyres can slip and relieve the wind up
If you persist in the practice of driving in 4wd on hard surfaces then be prepared for transfer case , drive line problems well before expected wear time.

I have a lexus is 250 with a tiptronic auto box when im coming downhill the car is hunting/jerking and never done it before.the gearbox is smooth but when you drive on the highway for a long time and


read the owners manual on the operation of a tiptronic box. It will probably state that the manual selection of the box is for keeping the gear box in set gears to prevent unnecessary gear changing. So when going down hill select a gear manually and that will use the engine braking capability instead of up shifting as the rpms increase
It is fun to use the tiptronic as a manual box but that is not the real purpose of the transmission design.. IT is to lock the transmission into certain gears to prevent unnecessary up and down shifting of the transmission

Tiptronic transmission


Sounds like your transmission is bad. You'll need to take it to a shop to have it checked out.

As long as it virtually goes when warmed up, don't worry. When starting from cold remember P & N aren't actually driving the transmission. Point to note, Jaguar say no servicing of auto-trans necessary - this is NOT true - fluid AND filter should be changed about every 25/30 thousand kms.

THE TIPTRONIC SHIFTER DOES NOT FUNCTION,........REGULAR AUTOMATIC OK


I have the same problem with my 2003 Passat TDI. There is a magnet in the gear selector to engage and disengage the manual shift. I live in Thailand and am waiting on the VW dealer to locate one. If you are a little bit hands on you could possibly do the repair yourself. the replacement part is the plastic that slides up and down when you select your AUTO gears and of course to pull to the gate to engage manual shift. The magnet is part of that plastic replacement part. Cost 2000 baht which is about 42 English pounds. Good Luck
