Question about 1989 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

1994 golf tranny slips between third and fourth but pulls strong

Can anyone out there help me with this? Tranny feels strong but hesitates engagement between drive and od and chirps when it shifts then, but only then. I really like this little "go cart" and it is a fun car to drive. If I can solve this, then I will be hanging onto this car for awhile.

thanks,

Jeff

Try changing the fluid and filter in the transmission. this will cost around $150 at a shop or you can do it yourself. here's a guide.

Have you checked the tranny fluid? It sounds like it could be low fluid levels.

My 2001 audi a4 2.8 tranny hesitates revers, third and fourth


This sounds to be the orings in the solenoid package. Nobody just replaces the orings. Put some tranX in the transmission, this is a oring reconditioner, it costs about $10.00 to15. .
My transmission was dropping out of gear and I used this and with three days it quit slipping. thats been almost two years ago.

Car goes into reverce but does not engage completely works fine in forward, when in reverce it seems lik it wants to ingage but does not. it makes a chattering sound and feeling. what electric part puts...


Hello. As you know, the transmission is one of the more sophisticated components in any auto. It takes the most transmission pressure to engage reverse, third, and fourth gear in an auto tranny. In an auto tranny, the shifter is connected to a linkage that manually shifts between the different gears in the transmission. When you shift into reverse, all transmission pressure is concentrated to engage reverse. When you shift to drive the transmission will operate normally, building pressure until it can shift into the next gear. With third, second, or first gear selected it will lock out all higher gears (Unless the TCU detects overrevving of the engine, in which case it will override gear selection and upshift to avoid engine damage). All the TCU does in a modern auto tranny is control shift points. Years and years ago, shifting was controlled by a spring attached to the gas pedal. When the gas pedal was depressed, the spring would expand. As tranny pressure grew, the spring would become compressed until it was fully compressed, engaging the next gear. The harder you stepped on the gas, the longer you went until the tranny shifted. In modern transmissions the TCU dictates shift points, and not much else. The TCU will also control when the torque converter will lock, but that's where it's duties end. The problem with engaging reverse is either a linkage issue, or a problem with the pump not building enough pressure to fully engage reverse.

Try putting the shifter in reverse, holding the brakes firmly, and giving the car gas. If the car reaches a higher RPM and suddenly slams into reverse it is the pump. The pump will only build enough pressure to engage reverse with higher RPM's. If the pump is severly damaged it won't engage at all, but if this is the case it probably won't engage third or fourth gear either at that point. If the problem is with the linkage, reverse just won't engage whatsoever, despite RPM's. I'd say start with the shift linkage. If it's bent or misadjusted it could cause reverse to not be fully engaged. The TCU doesn't control reverse at all, since there are no shift points and no need for the torque converter to lock.

Car stuck in gear


Is it an automatic or standard? If it's standard, check the shifter cable, automatic, I would do a fluid flush, change the tranny filter, and make sure the pan isn't bent. I know someone who had the same problem, they thought they needed a new tranny, but they just needed a new filter (cost a couple bucks at the auto parts store), and then they noticed the pan was bent, which wasn't allowing clearance for the larger gears to be engaged.

Stuck in third gear


Disconnect the linkage from the tranny. Manually move it on the tranny. Does it still do it. If so you have an issue with the tranny. If not its the shifter.
