Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta

Volkswagen 01M torque converter stuck

Recently rebuilt 01M transmission, 1996 Jetta. Replaced torque converter, valve body and solenoid cable, cooler, clutch plates and steel plates, pistons, etc. Torque converter was locked up prior to rebuild. Atributed converter sticking due to metal shavings from worn plates, this is what I was told... Torque converter is still locked up (over torques and stalls engine when shifted into gear, especially noticable in reverse). Confirmed lock-up is electronic by unplugging valve body (limp mode) and testing, converter releases, lock-up is not due to a sticking valve. Checked connectivity from ECM to valve body connector, no shorts or direct grounds found. Could the problem be with the ECM or the TCM? Is there any way to test?

You have to be very careful with input shaft rings. They like to eat into the pump stater. Also always buy new vb don't buy rebuilt because they only work 2 out of 5 times. I know this for experience

If the transmission fluid is very dirty, it is recommend changing the transmission fluid and if possible removing the transmission pan for further diagnosis. Excessive debris or metal particles on the transmission pan could be an indication that there is a transmission mechanical failure and that the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced.

My Ford Focus 2006 4 cyc has an engine code PO741 on my OB2. What does that mean?


P0741 Torque convertor clutch circuit failure,it is located in the transmission valvle body, it is attatch to the valve body you can remove it seperately as long as your going to own the Ford focus you might as well get use to replacing these all the time,very common transmission issue with todays car. By the way it is sensitive to worn transmission fluid,when you dont service often these are suspectable to failure.

Automatic transmission for 2002 jetta tdi , slips


You have the infamous Volkswagen 01M automatic transmission. Rumor is, every single one of these tranny's will fail -it's only a matter of time. You may not necessarily need a new or rebuilt tranny. Do some searching at www.tdiclub.com - there's a ton of info over there - those guys are extremely knowledgeable.
