Not sure what to suggest.
Automatic transmission have a build in self diagnostic that can be run with the right equipment, but there is not much I can suggest without that, except for just changing the AFT and making sure the radiator is not blocked with dust, leaves, or anything that would cause the transmission to overheat.

Hi!!
Check to see if the ATF cooler is not obstructed, it should be in front of the radiator, (if it is not, have it installed somewhere it could get more ventilation). if it is clear, you probably need to install a larger cooler or an extra cooler, in line with the one you have, and an after market cooling fan in front of the radiator.
You can try the fan first, if it is not enough, try the extra cooler.
I recommend you do this ASAP before the tranny gets damaged.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!!

How can i add transmission fluid to my 2001 vw golf,,auto trans.


THE 5 SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

At the bottom of the automatic gearbox (tiptronic) you will find one threaded plug on below surface, (follow red arrow in the picture below). This is for emptying.

The oil level threaded plug is placed on the car front lateral automatic gearbox surface, (follow yellow arrow in the picture below).

The filling oil plug is placed on the upper automatic gearbox surface, (follow green arrow in the picture below).

Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) checking:
1. Requirements for check:
1.1. Vehicle standing on level surface.
1.2. Transmission must not be in fail-safe mode.
1.3. Shift lever in "P" position, parking brake applied.
1.4. Engine idling.
1.5. Air Conditioner and heater OFF.
1.6. ATF temperature must not exceed 104 Fahrenheit degree (40 Celsius degree) at start of test.
1.7. Automatic gearbox oil capacity: 2,5 liter. Only ATF with VW designation may be used. Do not use any lubricant additives.
1.8. Automatic Transmission Fluid ATF - part number: VW G 052 990 A2
1.9. An ATF level check when transmission oil temperature is too low results in overfilling, when too high results in underfilling.
2. CAUTION: Too much or too little ATF will affect the operation of the transmission. The ATF level must be checked at regular intervals.

Golf gt tdi just fitted new duelmass flywheel and gearbox but now got a bad vibration through the car?


I'm just guessing... Are your fly wheel bolts new? VW recommends NEW fly wheel bolts. Sometimes when you secure the axles specifically the inner CV joints to the drive flanges, may some how bind inside the casing (cage) and cause the vibration.

Clutch disc installation:
Tighten bolts diagonally to ensure that pressure plate is seated squarely on the flywheel without distortion. If not seated and torqued evenly, chattering and engagement problems may result.

2005 MKV Golf cannot go into reverse on its tiptronic gearbox


Find a VW mechanic, those cars are known to have weak automatic and manual transmissions. You probably need a new one. Don't cheap out and buy a used one or you'll be sorry when it doesn't last. A quality rebuilt trans should have at least a 1 year warranty.
