Sounds like you have yourself a bad shift solenoid pack this is mounted on the front of the transmission under a thick rubber boot and has an 8 or 10mm bolt holding a plug into it, these usually fail hot as it is an electronically controlled solenoid and there are tiny little springs and magnets inside that can stick also while you are in there do yourself a favor and change the two speed sensors on the transmission they are about $22 each and can also cause the problem you are explaining. the shift solenoid pack is about $120 on ebay and some sellers actually sell them along with the input and output speed sensors you may try changing those first and see if it solves it but i have a feeling your solenoid pack is failing also when you change these parts it may take the computer a few trips to relearn shift points but you'll know it fixed it right off the bat.. please rate and good luck -jeff

Man you have a lot of things to check out. You really need to start out by getting a computer scan done on your truck. Diesels are not what they use to be, and there are to many things to look at. My initial thoughts are that you have a bad injector, but if you are not mechanicaly skilled this is not a job for you. Please save your self the head ache and get the scan done by a reputable dealer or mechanic not the cheapo parts store. It could be anything from a dirty filter or line to a injector.

If you get the scan done and then its something you can do your self, go for it. I have told my friends if they want to buy a diesel, which I am not against at all. If they want me to work on them they have to buy the scanning tool for it because finding the problem takes for ever.

Once you get the scan done then let me know and I can help you more.

SOURCE: New clutch cable made gear change much worse.

Hi,

Had a recent similar problem. Fortunately, my replacement cable is adjustable. As the new cable stretched, I had to take a crowbar to the the throwout lever next to the battery and lever it back while pulling off the cable (towards the battery). I then lifted the fuse box (look out for the 10mm plastic nut that holds it in on the side by the driver's side fender) on the drivers side right in front of the windshield to reach down and pull the cable up enough to reach the adjustor. When it is high enough, release the locknut and turn the adjusting nut upwards about 4 turns (both nuts on my cable were 17mm and a "stubby" is handy but not necessary. Grab the end by the battery and, making sure it is seated on the groove on the transmission, pry the lever again with the crowbar and reseat tg
he cable end in the lever. I have had to readjust the cable twice more before it settled in a comfortableplace, but once you get the hang of it, it only takes about 10 minutes.

Hope this is helpful.

SOURCE: when started from cold my tdi vw bora crunches

try changing the oil, paying great attention to manufacturer's recommendations. Could be oil is way too thick and is sticking things that are supposed to slide, until it warms and thins.

Transmission is sliping when warmed up, in all gears. Goes into all gears fine when cold.


Check transmission fluid level Hot in D. Over full will cause frothing and loss of pressure in the system. Have a transmission pressure test done . It may need a band and clutch pack adjustment.

Transmission Question


It sounds to me like the transmission is starting to fail. As the clutches inside the transmission wear the clutch pack gains additional clearance. Your pressures in the transmission will be higher with cold oil so it has a tendency to build a bit of extra pressure, but it's also slower in flowing through the transmission. This results in a harder hitting first gear. As the transmission warms up, it will reduce the viscosity of the oil and work fine. Cold weather kills automatic transmissions. Let it warm up before driving it or it won't last long. It will require an overhaul soon.

Auto gearbox gets stuck in reverse gear.


This is likely a sticking valve in the transmission valve body assembly, try adding a can of Lucas brand transmission additive.

Problems accelerating


the engine tickover is too slow when the engine is cold its running on cold start, ie:choke,, after it warms up the engine slows down this is what is causing it to stall in gear,, get some one to hold the brakes hard on and with the engine running in gear ajust the tick over till its reving at 750 - 850 rpm the revs will go up a bit when its out of gear,, before you pick a gear to go into push the foot brake down to stop the car lurching,,,
