    brought the car to the dealer they said I need a new transmission.
     I do not believe them as the trans does not exhibit any other problems it just seem to hesitate between shifts between 3rd and 4th gear

    2000 VW Jetta 2.0 auto. Same exact issue. Ran fine until suddenly 1 sec delay when shifting from 3rd to 4th gear. nothing else seems to be affected. Pulled codes 2 days later, some grounding issues that i cleared up with the injectors, and a misfire on cyl 1. Replaced plugs, now pulls no codes, but still tranny issue. I have been told to check into the injectors due to maybe at higher speed not enough is getting pushed in, but im leaning towards trannys screwed.

2000 VW Jetta, Autmatic, 2 L: Front end vibrates between 25-30 MPH when accelerating under torque, feel like it may becoming trom the transmission. Have replaced, balanced and aligned the front two tires.

Shop for a rebuilt transmission, or get an estimate from AAMCO for a rebuild job, but it won't be cheap. Get at least 3 estimates before you decide how to proceed. Good luck.

Is there a Fuse for a/t shifting, 2000 vw jetta


From the tear of the car I guess you have the 4-speed automatic. That transmission is not one of the most reliable ones...it has an internal wiring harness with relays attached to it, that are in control of what gear to select, based on input from an internal speed sensor, engine speed sensor and wheel speed sensor. There is also an issue with VW claiming that the transmission "is filled for life", which is absolute B.S. You have to change the transmission fluid and the filter at least every 60K or you will face an expensive rebuild. Have your mechanic scan the computer for fault codes related to the transmission and change the fluid and filter when the problem got fixed.

1995 VW Jetta Automatic transmission shifts fine upon initial take-off from stand-still. Once tranny has shifted up into 4th, and then back down into 3rd, (as it should normally) it will not shift back...


I would suspect you are correct and it is an electrical problem with the electronics in the transmission. I would recommend you have this looked into by a professional. Ignoring it my end up causing more expensive problems.

2004 mazda 3 transmission problem


Check transmission fluid. If that is full, try changing the fuel filter. It could be starving for gas, and trying to shift but can't. It could also be the speed sensor, or shift solenoid.

Trans drops into 3rd gear won,t shift to 4th


DTC P0734 is "4th gear incorrect ratio" - that's your torque converter 'LOCK UP Clutch" It's worn out (or you're using the wrong Trans Fluid required by Hyundai - SPIII OR Both). The P1624 is simply the Trans Control Unit (computer) communicating to the Engine Control Module (ECM computer) MIL - on request signal to ECM = asking it to turn on "Check Engine" light. MIL = Malfunction Indicator Lamp. When the torque converter 'lock up" clutch slips or doesn't engage, the trans automatically returns to 3rd gear and stays there (it's called 'fail safe' mode) until you cycle the ignition key, then everything resets until the malfunction occurs again.
You'll need to have an AT (Automatic Transaxel) tester hooked up to verify this. Hyundai has a Service Bulletin specifically for "gear incorrect ratio' codes. If when you changed the trans fluid, was it done at a Hyundai Service Center? If not, someone may have installed the wrong fluid.
