Question about 2001 Volkswagen New Beetle
Sometimes transmission shifts perfectly, other times starts off in drive3 from standing start and will not hit o.d. when it's acting up, i can manually shift from 1 to 2 to 3 and it shifts very smoothly, but still no 4 (od) even when putting shifter in 'D' it stays in 3rd. Dealer said it was 'speed controller problem (very expensive of course) yet about 50% of the time it works beautifully. I was curious if 'engine temp' could affect shifting control, since i know my thermostat is stuck open. Thank You in advance.

all vw cars have a computer on board that controls a fuzzylogic gearbox.the racier you drive the higher the revs before upchange and vise versa ie low/low change so the harder you drive the more noticable the gearshift will be in auto mode.manual mode will always be jerky compared to a std auto box.THE JOYS OF NEW TECHNOLOGY.....

There is an electrical malfunction in the EV5 solenoid electrical circuit. You must go to Advance Auto or Autozone and borrow their scan tool and get the code.
