Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

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 that it is not the transmission. Any ideas?

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.

02 audi A6 The car jerks with RPM up and down when put in gear. It doesn't do it in Park. What do you think?


Change the transmission fluid. VW says "lifetime fluid" but it needs to be changed at least every 80,000 miles. I used valvoline maxlife, it is synthetic and met the vw spec.

Starts in a wrong gear (4th gear) and jerks before it go


Run fault codes and look for a faulty TCM unit. THE TCM will also put on the engine light and affect the speedometer operation . Running the fault codes will also identify the sensor associated with the ABS unit.. Seeing as to how you have just bought the car (possibly from a corner used car dealer) I would advise a pressure test done on the transmission to check for the condition of the transmission and have an oil change and the bands and clutch packs adjusted

I have a 2000 vw beetle turbo manual transmission when i try to drive it it is not going into each gear could it be the clutch?


Does it grind the gears in the transmission. If yes, it could be the clutch/pressure plate. It could be the clutch hydraulic slave cylinder not working. Check all these thing out before purchasing a new clutch/pressure plate. When VW is running does if like the vehicle has no get up an on like maybe the clutch is slipping. GB...stewbison

VW New Beetle Turbo GLX stalls, transmission problems.


I have a 2000 Volkswagen beetle turbo as well, and experienced this same problem. It seemed to be especially worse in bad weather. We have taken it various places but no one could seem to fix it since it was sporatic. Finally, we had some hoses replaced, and havent had any problems with it for about a month now.

Automatic transmission slipping in 2000 VW Beetle 2.0l


If you want to try and avoid a tranny change. I highly recommend KW TransX transmission additive. Follow instructions on bottle.

If there is a serious transmission problem this will only prolong failure.

Additive works great!

Here is what the can looks like. Can be purchased at Advance Auto or Autozone.

TRANSMISSION PROBLEM


Check your trans fuild on drivers side of trans should be a plug that you unscrew to check the level if its full.

Step 2

Sound like the torque conveter is locking up. Your looking at a costly repair. These cars have so many problems that VW won't recall none of them. So I think you should trade it in for an American product. Good Luck
