It could be many things. The engine idle may be too high, it should be around 700 rpm. The motor mounts may be bad. Watch with the hood open while someone puts it in and out of gear. Check if exhaust hangers are weak and allowing it to clunk against the body. ATF could also be dirty and clogging the relief ports, so a change of fluid might help. If none of those help, then I would go the more expensive route of having a transmission specialist look at it. There is not much else you can do on your own.

You might check your transmission mounts; you have an upper "pendulum" mount, and a "dog-bone" mount underneath.

SOURCE: 2001 vw passat not shifting out of first

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), 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.

SOURCE: where do i fill transmission fluid on 2002 volkswagen passat

No fluids are consumed in any vehicle

Thinking something you know nothing about
& the real issues, should be addressed at a repair
shop or trans shop

If it is low on trans fluid, then most likely
the damage is done already, based on your
description.

If it is low, then at the very least, you repair the leak,
not just add fluid

Dtc 0700 jerks when shifting from reverse to drive

Car jerks when put into drive


check the engine/trans mounts. A good way to check yourself is to have someone standing in front of the engine with the hood open obviously, while you shift the tranny to drive or reverse, if your friends see's the engine moving vigorously, it's worn out mounts.
