Question about 1997 Volkswagen Passat
Pertaing to the code PO730 730 isn't (open or short) its ratio error. It corresponds to 00652 gear monitering implausable.
But, the computer uses the output speed sensor to determine 00652 so you'll need to fix that code first. The 722 can be the G68 or the wiring to it, or connection to it, or in some rare circumstances the TCM itself. Best thing to do here is to replace the G68 or try to pinpoint it with some ohms testing. Ohms checking is only conclusive when you find a problem. Meaning if you ohm check the sensor and it checks ok it could still be bad intermittantly. Same goes for the wiring. But if you ohm check it and it checks bad, then its bad. For the layman, the best step would be to slap a G68 on it. Its under the mount bracket. Mount bracket bolts are stretch bolts and should be replaced when removed and reinstalled.

P0730 simply means Incorrect gear ratio code.
1. This is a pretty guaranteed indication that the transmission is indeed slipping. It sounds to me like you will be needing a replacement transmission, the boots and filter will not solve your problem.
2. There is a pressure loss problem and with those codes it’s likely that it’s more than just low fluid. You can check with a transmission shop but I’ve got a feeling that transmission is toasted and a rebuilt or replacement is in your future.
I hope this will help you out.
