      Everyone has to try to reinvent the wheel. I'm not sure that would be accurate enough. If you want to do it the wrong way then just compare the temp of the trans to the temp of your hand. Your...

      there was one guy on this forum who built a metal peice to replace the plastic after breaking it. Other than that its new shifter I believe, or hunt through the salvage yards till you find one.

      If it holds park and releases park after moving the shifter out, and the fluid is full then you might need a trans.

      you can try to reset adapts. If that doesn't help then you can try some solenoids can stick and cause that, but usually clutches will be burnt.

      to the harness?? I'll bet that doesn't help at all.

      Fluid from the converter drains back overtime into the pan. As it sits the fluid level gets higher and higher. This is the reason your trans leaks after 3 days. Probably its the dipstick and not...

      you may have more than one issue but you have to address your code first.

      read the following link. Especially the part about "electrical issues" and "diagnosing a solenoid code".

      I love it that your ambitious enough to attempt rebuilding a 01m.

      Based on "locked up in reverse & manual low" I also would assume a clutch clearance problem with the B2. I think you have the...

      You should have it checked near you to confirm but I would assume you have a broken drum. So computer commands it to 4th but the trans isn't capable of making 4th so it slips and the computer sees...

      Worn valves. Most common symptoms are TCC slip trouble codes or TCC surging. There are some other issues also but they are hard to "nail down". Meaning you cant just "say it in a single sentence".

      here's how I diagnosed the first 2-3 flare I dealt with.

      1. Scan computer system. Found no codes.
      2. Check fluid level ( it was fine)
      3. Put on an exchange VB with all new solenoids (no...

      Ya, right! I read that article when it came out in Trans digest magazine, several years ago. Lots of good tech info in that article...... EXCEPT... the whole premise is that a low resistance...

      weird with the wipers, but a trans that will move and then quits moving warm or slightly warm is usually shot.

      Of course your wanting an answer that says, "oh the electrical connection between...

      you said "it has had" therefore I must assume you had a shop do this stuff. Therefore my 1st suggestion must be take it back to them and ask them why its doing this after they worked on it.

      Well then, I guess I have to ask, "how do you know the manual valve is hooked up correctly?"

      The forward clutch can be burnt so badly that it welds together, but that would cause a bind up in reverse. If reverse burnt out and forward was siezed up like that then that might explain what its...

      yes that is correct.





      Vagcom doesn't diagnose anything. The cars computer gathers info on the problems with its self diagnostic ability. Vagcom just gives you access to that info. Best...
