Car slowed and came to nearly a stop and would not rev. up the dealer says it is a solonoid problem in the trans. they said the diagnosed it and that is what the instrument told them, that a possible solonoid was bad. This sound strange. help

Most likely need a trans rebuild When you continue to use a vehicle with a trans that doesn't work properly,you ruin it in about 10 miles of driving When they slip,they have been abused for days or weeks & your done.
Hi Tom your vehicle is equipped with a Rev limiter it will not allow you to rev the engine above 4000 with the trans in park; as for the first problem you may have one of two things, one of the spark plugs or spark plug wires is bad or you have a flat spot on the throttle positioning sensor in which case have be replaced. Good luck?
when vw started to use the computer controlled gearbox system a criticism was the shift was very harsh,to counter this they made it rev slightly before changing.so that you know the system, try this out....without touching the gas.....put it in d and let the car accelerate to its max speed,stop,then use 1/3rd of gas (keep your foot still)and let it do the same...stop,then,if safe,put your foot to the floor,hard, notice when the car changes gear(revs/speed)then if you drive,only using the first1/3rd of the gas,the cars change pattern will alter to suit.......wierd it is.....
