My 2000 Beetle is jerking when it changes gears. I had a transmission put in about 14 months ago. I had it looked at a the local VW business and they told me that I needed a transmission. My machanic said...

when it jerks during gear changes it could be a couple of things.

First of all, check the fluid level in the automatic transmission.

Secondly, check the mounts for the engine that they're tight and secure and if they are then

Thirdly, ask the transmission shop if the torque converter is bad in it.

The torque converter could be locked up somehow causing this jerking and I wouldn't be surprised if the transmission shop lists a recall on it.

Actually, even if there is NO recall on it, tell the transmission shop that put the transmission in to check it out, and if possible rectify it under warranty.

I wish you luck in getting this fixed correctly.

2006 Pontiac G6 Transmission Jerking

I've had this same issue with my 2006 G6 on and off for about a year now. I've had three different places (one dealership and two service places) try to determine the problem and NONE of them have been able to get an Error Code when they ran a diagnostic.

The dealership replaced the battery, my one service guy did a complete tune up, changed the oil and air filter and checked the alternator. Again, he couldn't get an error code either.

I finally read on here that it could be the speed sensor, so I replaced that. It seemed to solve the problem for approx 6 months and now it's doing it again, only worse this time.

BTW - the speed sensor itself only costs about $40 - $50 bucks, so buy the part yourself (go to any auto parts store - but let them know that you need the speed sensor that goes by the transmission, not the one for the ABS) and have a local service mechanic replace it for you. It shouldn't take more than an hour TOPS, so don't let them rip you off on the labor just because you're supplying the part.

So after replacing the battery, spark plugs and speed sensor (not to mention maintenance related work - oil/air filter changes, etc) - I still have SOME sort of an electrical problem.

Jerking and stalling

computer very rarely go bad it definitely sounds like an internal transmission problem either clutches slipping or a solenoid sticking the o2 will not cause this provlem

Transmission is jerking violently then will not

That sounds like solenoid problems if this is an electrically controlled transmission. Fluid and filter change will likely NOT fix this. Flushing and filter change is preventive, not repair. Is the check engine light on? If so, rent a scanner and read the code(s). It should point out problems with transmission control. You likely need the services of a good transmission repair facility (many penny!).

Speedo needle jumps up and down tranmission jumps around also changed speed sensior and pcm runs ok for 15 min. no luck

i have the same problem with me 2000 montana. i was told that it was the tcc switch. it means that the torque converter is stuck in the on postion. to fix the problem i was told either to swap out the tranny with another used one or to have the switch replaced. the switch is internal and they need to drop the trans down to access the panel on the front driver side. the part is only $90 but its 3 hours labour.

Turn signals flash sometimes other times they just light up

replace flasher, or switch with emergency flasher to test.. Should be in with fuses or in that area.
