Any programming like that is done with VagCom through the OBD2 diagnostic port. If they have VagCom, they should be able to do it. I'd advise you to deal only with an independent shop that specializes in European cars, as they're much more likely to have familiarity with such work. Don't go to a dealer unless it is necessary - they're far more expensive than an independent shop.

    thats where i took it was a european speacility shop in Fayetville Ark. . I suspected they were wanting to sell me a trans. but i only gave $1,600.00 for car through Copart 3yr ago. But i've really enjoyed driving it. Is there a common problem with this car wereas there could be a wire shorting out from rubbing together with age ? I've had one other person take a look at it with a new Snapon Machine and he said he couldn't access the computer either.

Does my chevy silverado 2004 v8 2wd ls transmission have a filter and drain plug


No drain plug, the filter is inside trans. Remove trans oil pan (it will be full of tran fluid so loosen bolts on one end and work your way to other end) May have to take bolts out of a cross member and slid it back to get to all the pan bolts. The filter is flat and you'll see it once the pan is dropped. Pull straight down to remove. Clean out sludge and old fluid from pan and scrape old gasket off.
Push new filter into place. Its a good idea to use gasket sealer to help keep it from leaking and to help hold gasket in place so bolt holes stay lined up while bolting up pan. Tighten all bolts evenly. Then refill tran with the fluid your service manual list. Operate your truck in all gears (shifting back and forth) and recheck trans fluid level. Its not a hard job to change filter and fluid. If you can change your own motor oil and have a rachet and sockets then you couldnt have any problems. Just get your filter and trans fluid from your local auto parts store like Autozone or Advance Auto Parts.

Hi , My audi a4 97 std auto box is slipping in D


Rory
Its your body valve in the gear box which is not letting the pump on forward gears pump enough oil to the forward band and because the band isent tight it is slipping..
Now it could be the oil in box and if you take off the auto pan and clean out the filter on the pick up and refill with DEXTRON II TRANS FLUID then you should be ok as long as it hasent slipped to much .
Let me know how you get on . RON

Have a 97 caravan (grand) and it runs normally when it first starts from cold.. goes about 15 miles .all gears shift fine on highway then all of a sudden it drops out out overdrive (4 speed auto) and will...


Caravans are known for transmission failures. Sometimes it's just a speed sensor or computer problem, but most of the time you need a rebuilt trans. Don't fall for the trans flush might fix it story. On older or high miles trannies, flushing can cause more problems than it solves. Find a good trans shop not just your regular garage and have them take a look. If you do need a rebuilt trans look up engine and trans rebuilding shops in the yellow pages or google. Buy it directly and save a lot of money. If you regular garage won't install it for you then find an independent mechanic that will (some garages won't let your bring in your own parts because they lose all the money they make by marking up the cost of parts).

Audi a4 tdi stiff gearchange worse when hot 1197 model


tandard practice to change the oil on a clutch replacement. Was the replacemmiles it's covered, but it's not sounds like the gearbox oil need changing. You don't say how many miles it has done. Gear box oil is not usually changed in a clutch replacement. Did an Audi garage carry out the rlacement? It could be the cable needs adjusting to allow the clutch to have free movement
