2003 VW Beetle with Automatic Transmission issue

When its cold outside the transmission seems to hang up in neutral for a few seconds...normally if you let up off the brake the car will move forward, but it sets there as if its hung up. I solved the problem during the Winter by letting the car warm up before driving. Now that its Summer there's not an issue, but Winter will be here in a several months......any ideas, suggestions? Thank you

I would probably begin by servicing the trans if it is time. try the obvious stuff first like trans fluid level, and there is a screen in there that filters the fluid if it needs to be changed it can make the trans act funny. Any oil change place should do it at a reasonable price. Hope this helps

Automatic transmission fluid vw polo


The dash lights are powered by the battery through the ignition switch via a fuse. Check the electric connections and conditions of the wires.

Change the transmission fluid to solve transmission issues. Original fluid is always preferable as it is specifically designed for the transmission.

I have a 2003 vw beetle with the 2.0 engine. I live in fairbanks and the cold weather is causing some kind of issue with the starting system. I have to put a heater in the cab just under the steering...


Check to see if the CTS has been updated. Should have a GREEN body and lives in the coolant hose over the transmission .

Ignition ( electrical part ) switches fail with monotonous regularity.

Use gas with no Ethanol in it.

VW beetle manual to automatic conversion-- possible?


Forget it. The automatic has different electronic components like transmission modules .sensors, ECM and cooling systems. Flywheel motor mounts and supports and sub-frame parts are different also. All of this would require a complete different engine and body harness and switches. Look for one with an automatic in it. try www.internetautoguide.com

It could be worn synchros in the transmission (hopefully not, as that requires disassembly of the gearshafts inside the transmission). Try changing the transmission fluid - Audi and VW claim "lifetime" fluid for the transmission that never needs servicing, but I've changed 75k mile fluid that looked horrendous.
