Question about 1997 Volkswagen Passat
Posted by Anonymous on
No, do not replace your transmission, the G68 sensor is not reading correctly, (input pulse sensor) It is right next to your transmission cooler (on the top of the transmission) Either it is not getting the signal or the sensor is not workng. If the sensor is working correctly, it may need the gap between the sensor and the (exciter ring) reduced. I have fixed over 50, 01M VW transmissions, that the dealer said was junk. When it was a simple sensor problem.
Let me guess, seems like it's stuck in third gear from take off? Reverse and (manually shifting it into first) work's fine? It's like the transmission is slipping and not shifting?
Even if you replace the trans with a used one the sensor will still not work. and it will act exactly the way it does now.
VW put two different sensor's on that car that year.
The part number's are:
01M927321 (no wire)
01M927321a (with extention wire)
