My 2000 Beetle is jerking when it changes gears. I had a transmission put in about 14 months ago. I had it looked at a the local VW business and they told me that I needed a transmission. My machanic said...


when it jerks during gear changes it could be a couple of things.

First of all, check the fluid level in the automatic transmission.

Secondly, check the mounts for the engine that they're tight and secure and if they are then

Thirdly, ask the transmission shop if the torque converter is bad in it.

The torque converter could be locked up somehow causing this jerking and I wouldn't be surprised if the transmission shop lists a recall on it.

Actually, even if there is NO recall on it, tell the transmission shop that put the transmission in to check it out, and if possible rectify it under warranty.

I wish you luck in getting this fixed correctly.

I took my 2007 vw beetle into a shop and the guy said it was a transmission code po 730. What does that mean and how much will it cost. The car works fine its just when I stop at the stop light and start...


code p 0730 refers to incorrect gear ratio===causes --wiring---R ( transmission ratio) sensor /switch---shift solenoids--transmission mechanical fault
you say that the transmission runs well except for the jerk so the transmission is good
It indicates that the TR sensor is faulty so take it to an accredites auto transmission specialist shop for a proper diagnosis and quote to replace the TR sensor

VW New Beetle Turbo GLX stalls, transmission problems.


I have a 2000 Volkswagen beetle turbo as well, and experienced this same problem. It seemed to be especially worse in bad weather. We have taken it various places but no one could seem to fix it since it was sporatic. Finally, we had some hoses replaced, and havent had any problems with it for about a month now.

TRANSMISSION PROBLEM


Check your trans fuild on drivers side of trans should be a plug that you unscrew to check the level if its full.

Step 2

Sound like the torque conveter is locking up. Your looking at a costly repair. These cars have so many problems that VW won't recall none of them. So I think you should trade it in for an American product. Good Luck
