  1. Grinding in clutch

    Golf MK6 / 2009 -2014
    Hi all, Bought a Golf 2.0 Tdi S 2009 with 96k miles few days back. Unfortunately my joy was short lived as I took a 90mile drive after and realised there is vibration in the clutch when I shift gears. The higher the rev the higher the vibration but it shifts alright and everything is normal...

    RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    Hello everyone, today i will change my gear oil, i saw this valvoline full synthetic but before i buy the oil i want some opinions or experiences about the valvoline gear oil. Its a good gear oil? Its a crap oil? The shifts are smooth?
  4. Moved over from the Jetta

    Golf MK7 / 2015 and up
    I traded in my '13 Jetta TDI with DSG for a'16 Golf Sportwagen TSI with TipTronic 6 speed. The only thing I wish I so had was the DSG tranny. I miss the crisp shifts. All in all though, the wagen hauling capacity is awesome with a young family.
  5. QUESTION intermittent reverse on my 98 Jetta glx vr6 , anyone have any ideas?

    Ask A Volkswagen TECH - Hosted by Nitroscope8
    Car shifts and runs fine with reverse as the exception. I have changed the oil and filter with correct vw fluid, made sure level was correct. Sometimes to go into reverse you need to shift into drive move a few inches then put it into reverse and it will go right in, no noises or banging into...

  8. Reverse always grinds but all other gears worked fine

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    I want to ask this question on the title because I remember my reverse always would grind but any other gear shifts where perfect from what I remember. Does anyone have any ideas of what would cause this on the 1980 rabbit diesel models? I'm just going by what I remember so I'll just ask while I...
  9. Tiguan 2011 Automatic Gear Shifting

    VW Tiguan Technical
    I have a Tiguan 2011 (17,000 miles only), automatic 4Motion DSG 7-speed. Have noticed a clunking noise during gear shifting (up or down). This happens only when it shifts up from gear 1 to 2 to 3 and downward. Is it normal? This is happening since I bought the car brand new in 2011. The...

  11. Transmission Probs

    VW Rabbit MKV Forum 2006/2007/2008/2009
    I've recently been having some iffy shifts after driving around suburban areas for about 30 minutes. I had new fluid put in the transmission to see if this would solve the problem but it hasn't. it has helped though. I was reading about how transmission problems when the engine/transmission are...
  12. 1.8 Jetta Auto trans freaks out once warm!?

    Jetta / Bora MK4 / 1999-2004
    I just bought a very clean 2001 Jetta 1.8 with an auto trans. When cold, it shifts like brand new, smooth as silk. Once warm, it really bangs through each shift if you are on the gas. You can manually shift it, and if you back off on the gas at the same time it is bearable. Some friends...

  15. DSG shifts into neutral

    VW CC Technical Forum
    I recently purchased a new 2013 CC sport. It has the DSG transmission. This is my first experience with the DSG. The CC has 1100 miles on it and the transmission shifts from 1st gear into neutral approximately 10% of the time. It does it just enough to make me very cautious about pulling out...
  16. Any automatic Mk5's in Kansas with a tune?

    MKV Mods and Installs
    I'd like to tune our Rabbit, but it's an auto. I'm worried the tune won't help solve the problems I have with the trans (slow, sloppy shifts.) Anybody near Fort Riley, KS have an auto with a tune on it? I'd love a ride in your car if you do. Thanks!
  17. Transmission issues

    GTI MK4 / 1999-2005
    I have a VW golf gti with a 2.0, I just had the engine replaced and now that i got it back from the shop the transmission isnt working right. It shifts gears at around 4,000 rpms and it wont shift into 4th or overdrive. Is there a sensor that could cause this problem or is the transmission in...
  18. Throttle Response?

    RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    Is there any mods out there that will create an instant throttle response? I'd like to see the RPM's move the moment I hit the gas so that I can have more accurate downshifts. I notice that throttle response is slower at lower RPM's. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  19. Automatic transmissions reverse issue: 2001 Golf

    Golf MK4 / 1999-2002
    The car is a 2001 Golf with 140,000 miles. The issue for today is that it doesn't like to shift into reverse. When I move the lever to R, it can take up to 10 or 15 seconds before it shifts into reverse. The problem is worse when the engine and transmission are cold. I've poked around on...
  20. Idea about mileage, for Automatics.

    VW Rabbit MKV Forum 2006/2007/2008/2009
    I am doing this test this week... If driving in tiptronic mode gets better mileage. Shifting at around 2100 normally, what do you guys think?
