It is most likely the transmission, component causing it would be the valve body, which can be replaced separately, but usually if there is higher mileage on the transmission the clutch plates are also worn and replacing the valve body may not fix the whole issue.

Testimonial: "milage is about 122000Km. drove the car today and it was perfect. The only problem is the change from 2nd to 3rd that still abit rough. I was told i should have the gear box sensor looked at or replaced. But i think the problem will come back"

    hi there here is a peson with a similar problem that i found on the net "I have VW golf 1999 and scanned at autozone and i have this error codes P0715 and P1626. Does anyone know where Transmission speed sensor location on Golf 99 is? i'll try and replace myself and see if transmission will start changing gears because it is running only on third gear in transmission emergency mode. If someone will show me a picture that will be helpfull. thank you in advance"

    It is underneath the transmission mount, is not difficult to replace, you just need to support the transmisson with a jack and remove the two (18mm I believe) bolts, lower the tranny and you can then see the sensor.

    But if that speed sensor fails it usually sets off the check engine light. I have replaced a lot of valve bodies for the concern you are stating, intermittent harsh upshift, usually the 2-3 shift

    engine check light does not come on. Replacing the valve body that sounds complected and expensive

    Any tranny work is usually not cheap. Not that complicated, just takes some paying attention to detail and cleanliness.
