You most likely ruined the trans by using the
car with ANY Trans problem,but that's what folks
like to do.

NO ONE can guess at these questions we get here

Vehicles have to be tested to find problems

The hard shifting & you using it- pretty much tells
me it is coming out & being rebuilt, to the tune of
about $4,500

The symptoms your describing, regardless of the reason
when they first started & if there was a solution, it now has
internal wear & damage

If you do not change the fluid every 2 or 3 years since a vehicle was new & it is 8 years old or more, you killed the trans, on any vehicle

That slamming into gear & driving only ten miles like that your done

There isn't a transmission dipstick for this car.

SOURCE: 2004 Passat 1.8T tiptronic automatic harsh down shifts

My 2004 Passat 1.8T 4motion has the same problem. Took it to the dealer. I thought it might be a software issue as there was a service bulletin for a similar issue registered at the NHTSA.gov website. They claimed they did all the sensor checks and found nothing. Then they said the tranny was shot and for a mere $5,000 I could have a new one. I begged to differ so I called VW itself and described the issue. Their customer service rep was not even up to the type of car this was and had no idea about what I was inquiring. Those people are trained to be obstructionists by VW. I tried to get this problem elevated to a higher level and was told they were the end of the line. Sadly we're on are own with this manufacturer. They simply deny, deny and deny. I'd suggest you lodge the problem with the NHTSA under defect investigation. Maybe some day they'll find it was a design or manufacturing flaw, just like their coil issue.

My 2005 Jetta is not shifting smoothly between the lower gears and makes a kind of clunking sound from 3rd-2nd. Drives very nice on freeway but it is very noticible when stopping and going frequently. ...


Standard or automatic? If auto have you checked your fluid. Is it full and what does it look like a bright red or a deep burnt red that smells burnt. Automatic transmissions use solenoids to control shifts for a while now. Occasionally they can get plugged or quit working due to small metal filings that come from where on transmission. When they gopen they will cause hard shifts.. p.'s. Is it cold where you are as vw transmissions really don't like the cold. They is many reports of cold weather causing hard shifts and also slow reacting to going into drive or reverse.

Hard shift when accelerating and slowing down


Check your transmission fluid level when the engine is running and the car is in 'park'. add extra appropriate fluid as necessary via the dipstick tube. When 'max' is reached I think you will notice a return to normal shift operation.

when a service person says "I think" , it is time for you to find a real mechanic that knows
Reading fault codes instead of I think is a better way to go to get the real fault fixed
find an accredited service shop that has experience on your make of vehicle , get the fault codes read and a quote

I have 2001 vw beetle and my transmission surgers... what can i do for it


On some volkswagen Transmissions you can reset the computers shift plan by doing the following. Starting with car off in park, turn ignition to ON (but do not start) then depress the gas pedal for at least 3 seconds, then shut the car off, start and drive. This resets the computer's shifting plan for some VW's and you can expect some hard shifts after this reset, but it may help with funny shifting. The afore stated speed sensor is also a possible culprit.
