Problems with a VW Passat 1998

I have a 1998 VW passat 1.8t and it is triptronic transmission. When selector lever is put on "D" it illuminates all gears selected and it moves but does not upshift. When put on "R" there is a cracking noise from the gear box

It sound like your transmission in safe mode. meening it will stay in one gear tell you repair it(3 gear) thats why it moves very slow. you need inside repair . it could be the shiffting sensor or overhaul for the transmission.

    Check your transmission mount .and for shiffting problem look for your shifting lever . it could be out of sink and need adjustments or replacment. good luck

Hi!!

Take the measuring stick from sleeve, place a funnel into sleeve (two dollars at your favorite auto parts) and add tranny fluid to level. Do not overfill.

Cannot find dipstick to check transmission fluid on 99 vw beetle. do '99 Passats need transmission fluid added to the engine? If so, how do I do this?


There is no "dipstick for the VW Beetle transmission". This is a dealer check/repair item. The unit is typically sealed, but can have a leak if the seal on top of the transmission fails. About a $700 repair. This happened on my 1998 VW New Beetle.

My 2006 VW Passat will not turn over...


the sensor that tells the can bus what position the stick is in is located on the gearbox not on gearstick.you need to know what position that sensor is seeing the only way is with a more advanced diagnostic tool than just a fault reader.i would recomend vw dealer as passat electrical sytems can be a bit of a challenge when they go wrong and a dealer will be best placed to sort it for you.

Transmission Control Module


We are not a parts service, but try an internet search for used VW parts, there are many VW only wrecking yards, that is your best chance of finding it. Also call VW and see if they sell a rebuilt module.
