Since the car is still under warranty, I say replace the fuel filter since it's not too expensive, and a good idea to do occasionally anyways. If the shifting problem still exists, they have no excuses for not fixing the transmission under warranty. Now would be a good time to get that done before you go out of warranty.

PS: Hope I'm not too late, but I just got here... :-/

When did you last replace trans filter and fluid? Dirt may be causing shift valve to stick.

2006 Jetta TDI Stalls in gear


These little engines(although very good little engines)have a problem with carbon build up in the intake manifold. It builds up so bad it begins to choke the engine off. The only solution is to remove the intake and soak with a good solvent over night and will generally take you a good couple of hours to clean out to get to "like new" again. Once this is accomplished, it's like driving your car new again!!

Sounds like a valve body transmisson problem. You need to have it hooked up to a scan tool to see what the problem is exactly at your VW dealership.

2003 tdi automatic transmission seems to be not shifting properly


I'm going to guess you have a clogged intake. See this site: http://buncombe.main.nc.us/~emaglott/pp022/index.htm

You can clean it yourself by removing the intake and powerwashing it out. If a dealer does it they will way overcharge you. You might need a new EGR valve too since that might be clogged up too. There are a lot of tutorials on the web and it isn't that bad of a job. Just make sure you wear gloves.
