Hi, you didn't mention if you have auto or manual. If it is manual then there no doubt that it is the transmission problem because the linkage is binding up which may require a new transmission as suggested because of the cost of fixing it and probability of it working after fixing it..
If it is automatic, it could possibly be the computer (ECU) which can only be checked by a transmission specialist on both account and if it's not the ECU, then you can start thinking about a new transmission...

2001 vw passat not shifting out of first


The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems.

Where does the transmission fluid go in a 1998 vw passat?


VW transmissions are seal and only take a special type of transmission fluid. Need to buy the correct type of fluid from your local VW dealer.
As for this being your problem, might want to verify first by checking to see if you have any codes in the transmission control module or the engine control module.

Cannot find dipstick to check transmission fluid on 99 vw beetle. do '99 Passats need transmission fluid added to the engine? If so, how do I do this?


There is no "dipstick for the VW Beetle transmission". This is a dealer check/repair item. The unit is typically sealed, but can have a leak if the seal on top of the transmission fails. About a $700 repair. This happened on my 1998 VW New Beetle.

98 mustang GT transmission locked in reverse


This could be a linkage problem. I am not familiar with this transmission, does the shifter go directly into the top of the tranny? If not make sure the linkage is not hanging up somewhere. I'll help if I can. Thanks..................DB.

Transmission Control Module


We are not a parts service, but try an internet search for used VW parts, there are many VW only wrecking yards, that is your best chance of finding it. Also call VW and see if they sell a rebuilt module.

Transaxle control module


I have a 1993 Caravan with a 4speed trans.. I had to replace the transaxle control module. I paid $50.00 for it at a auto salvage yard and It corrected the problem. My trans would either go into limp mode or act like it was in Neutral.
