Hi, It could be the transmission? you could try justanswers.com free 7 day trial and there are lots of VW mechanics there that could help. Did they code the car at the dealer? any auto parts store should be able to do that at no charge.
have you had the fuel filter replaced?I just joined this club, and hope someone has experienced, or have knowledge of the same problem as I have with my 2007 Rabbit.
The local VW dealership is not able to pinpoint the problem, and by process of elimination the cost could easily be more than the value of the car.
Cold or warm, when attempting to accelerate it will stay at idle.
Shifting gears gently, in fifth I will be doing 30 miles per hour.
After sometimes 2 sometimes 5 minutes it will give 3 beeps then suddenly accelerate, and everything is OK.
It may run fine the rest of the day, or it may repeat the problem if it is shut off and started later in the day.
The dealer diagnosed that the throttle body needed cleaning, and it needed an O2 sensor.
Throttle body was cleaned, but although it may need an O2 sensor, the sensor does not work intermittent, and would therefore not cause this problem..
Following the dealer's suggestion the engine temperature sensor (coolant) was changed.
The problem is still there.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I will keep checking this site, but if it is allowed I can be contacted directly.
I thank you in advance.
