Had the same issue...feels like it jerks hard with loud clunk noise when slowing down. the dealership replaced the transmission body. been a year now and now it needs a new tiptronic switch and other trans work. dumb-*** dealer should have fixed it all at the same time

Check your transmission fluid level when the engine is running and the car is in 'park'. add extra appropriate fluid as necessary via the dipstick tube. When 'max' is reached I think you will notice a return to normal shift operation.

2001 jetta automatic transmission does not down shift or shift into overdrive


Once again, not enough information given. How many miles on unit? When you say does not downshift do you mean when you press hard on accelerator pedal, or when you slow down? When you say does not shift into overdrive do you mean high gear or torque converter does not lock? The cars are know for transmission problems and while sometimes you get lucky, usually they require a rebuild or replacement. How often do you replace the fluid and filter?

92 buick lesabre 97000 miles, on slow acceleration, @ 40mph going into 4th gear there is a mild chutter, same @ 50mph going into OD mild chutter and when down shifting from OD to 4th. All is when slow...


This sounds like a vacuum leak prob. At low acceleration there isn't quite enough vacuum for smooth shift.. But romp on it and it creates a vacuum at the same rate as your gas is getting sucked.

Whenever I put the Audi A4 in reverse it shifts fine but when i put in in drive it shifts real hard and when I am slowing down at times it downshifts like something hit me.Where do I add trans fluid?


down the dipstick tube!!!(really)DO NOT OVERFILL...
Your audi is fitted with a fuzzy logic gearbox, it will change according to your driving style.TRY THIS,put into 1st and without touching gas pedal, let the car accelerate to top gear,stop Then using onle 1/3rd gas pedal do it again.then using 2/3rds do it again.then only using the minimum pedal req accelerate to max legal limit.(try not to use brake pedal,let the car slow down itself,until you have to)then drive as normal, it will feel like a different car.
