    1. Hello Charlie,

      1.8 TIPTRONIC, 2002 PASSAT WAGON, 137,000mi. VIN:WVWVD63B72E081482 TCM# 3BO 927 165 AB

      Thank you for your response concerning my TCM.

      This story has been going on for about a year, it is about a hesitation, a loss of power during acceleration or deceleration. What I have learned to do is pump the gas pedal once and then I am back to power. I have brought this subject up on the forum and gotten a varied response, one being RTD. I have had 3 different mechanics try to figure this one out, and there are no codes to be seen on OBD or the vag-com. I did borrow a vag-com for 2 weeks and did the best I could to run the right programs to catch this, but, wouldn't you know it, it wouldn't happen. Seems to be that when you need to do a diagnose it will never show itself. It is totally intermittent, predictably unpredictable.

      Any thoughts?

      Thank you Charlie for your expertise,

      Drew
