Question about 2005 Volkswagen Touareg

Open Question

2006 VW Touareg Altitude small thud in low revs.

Hello, while moving very slowly in a traffic jam or at very low revs, as the car picks up a small amount of speed, I appear to feel a small **** sensation in the car at about 2,000 revs. Just had the car serviced about 2 months ago and they never picked up anything and the jerking started soon after the service. It feels like the car is stopping momentarily to change gears but its very faint. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks

It should feel pretty tight, but germans (vw audi bmw porsche mb) put a lot of rubber bits in the linkage and when the rubber wears out, there is more play. 
If you want to fix it yourself,  check with the folks at blauparts.com for parts and advise on this.  They have OEM VW and Audi parts and they run a first rate repair shop also.  They will be able to tell you what rubber shift linkage parts are available AND how hard they are to replace.
germanautoparts.com is good for parts also
Dealship is usually most expensive for OEM parts.
Good luck,  when you get the rubber stuff replaced, it should feel nice and tight

the esp light is caused by failure of the brake light switch in most models. check your brake light operation and replace the switch if the brake lights have failed. the switch is found in the footwell above the brake pedal

First- lets change engine coolant sensor/ECT/ and you will be very surprised.Black head with four pins.Be very carefull when change it because there is pressure into coolant system.First-open slowly the cap of engine coolant tank.Then tighten again to safe coolant.Unplug the sensor,remove the pin and pull out the sensor.If the "O"ring/old one/ is still inside-take it out.

Sure.
If I remember right, there is a long pipe that attaches to the transaxle shifter, and goes up to underneath the stick.
There is a nylon bushing that holds it in place on the stick end. It wears thin and falls out, allowing this long pipe to bang around.
Mark the edge of the shifter plate first, then unbolt the 2 13mm bolts, to remove the shifter and the lock out plate underneath it.
Remember the orientation of the lockout plate, or keep it with the shift plate, so that you don't try to reinstall it upside down later.
Then pull out the stick.
Notice the prong and how it fits into the groove of the cup on the end of the long pipe, for reinstallation.

Then grab the long pipe and move it around.
See how it hits the edge of a hole in a metal support, instead of being held tightly by a plastic bushing.
If I remember right, the new bushing has a split on one side so that you can open it and put it around the pipe, and then you slide it back until it snaps into the hole.
Grease it well.
Put the shift plate back where is was, or else you might have trouble shifting into all the gears.

Vw golf mark4 over revs


Hello James,

If the engine revs up with no increase in speed, your clutch is slipping. Probably the reason the car was sold!
