      Hi Dave,
      Well N281 is way out of spec for sure. I can't say for sure it will fix your problem, but it's sure way out of spec. Seeing as this Solenoid controls brake B3 in gears 1-4 and reverse it very well may solve your problem. I'm no expert on these things, just a novice and figure I can test the components and replace them way cheaper than any mechanic. If it was my car I would roll the dice and replace it. The worst thing that can happen is you are no better off then when you started, but you will have at least gained some knowledge.If it fixes the problem you can pat yourself on the back and feel good you saved thousands of dollars that a dealership would have charged to replace the entire tranny. On a side note if you are using the inexpensive Mercon V fluid you can just dump it and replace with little trauma to the bank account. If OEM fluid and it's new just drain it into a clean container and re-use it.

      great thread - thx for your efforts to communicate this Don

      Don,
      After getting solenoid N281 out, I measured the resistance and it was within the spec? I put the new one in anyway, and there was no change.
      Did I measured the wrong terminal?
      What puzzles me is that when I measured at the terminal end it was high but at the solenoid end it was within the spec!
      Any comment from you would be appreciated.
      Dave

      Perhaps there is something wrong with the wiring harness - increasing the resistance?

      I will post links to the thread with Solenoid data and also an actual picture of where the filter is Courtesy of Conko who took his 09A apart to fix a reverse problem. The picture of the filter location is in the reverse thread that is in the DIY/FAQ.

      Hi coolvdub
      I have a 2000 VW Golf 2.0l with 4 speed automatic gearbox. Last week a check engine light came up to my cluster. I put the scanner and I've got P0748 code, so that does mean the failure in N93 solenoid control valve.
      I live in Ottawa, Canada since the last week I'm looking for that solenoid. At the VW dealership they want to sell me the valve body, cost $700cnd. Do you know where I can find it?

      ValveBodyBuilders has the whole valve body for $500 - They're located in Ontario too. I ordered one from them and it fixed up my 01M transmission's hard shifting problems!

    14. 02-24-2009 06:35 PM #89
      I have the shifting problem on my 2001 jetta 01m trans......
      I’m getting a check engine light with codes p0730 along with P0740 and the EPC light comes off and on every now and then.
      I tested resistance on solenoids and got the following results:
      EV-1 N88 70.5 ohms EV-2 N89 75.4 ohms EV-3 N90 140ohms
      EV-4 N91 6.4 ohms EV-5 N92 114 ohms EV-6 N93 6.5 ohms
      EV-7 N9472 ohms TFT Sensor 34.4 k ohms
      all seem to be a little higher then specs. with the exception of the TFT whick is way lower then the specs and 3 & 5 which are way higher. Any advice would be great? What to do?What can be the problems?

      Hi everybody
      I found at one Transmission shop here in Ottawa a used valve body for $200cnd. The only problem is that the guy doesn't give me any guarantee for it.
      is there any problem if I still driving my car stock with the 3rd gear ?

      You can't go very fast...

      Finally I fix my Volks, I changed the whole valve body plus some other solenoids. My car runs well and you can feel the difference when it shift the gear.
      Total cost of reparation $125cnd

    18. 03-20-2009 04:41 PM #93
      always i prefer change the complete valve body

    19. 03-21-2009 06:05 PM #94
      How much work, beyond what Don has shown us here is it to remove the valve body? When you say you found a clogged shift solenoid, then swapped them, do you mean you swapped them with new ones? Once you had the valve body off, were you able to replace the internal filter? Thanks

    20. 03-21-2009 07:22 PM #95
      Hi Herb, Did you put the Valvebody in your VW yourself? Do you have a list of any other items that replaced while doing the job? Wiring Harness, ect...Thanks

      Yes I did - but I have an 01M 4spd, which is really easy to do (disconnect solenoid harness, remove 13 bolts and the manual linkage and it comes right out). The manual linkage has a plunger rod, a replacement came with my valvebody, but I reckon the old one could've been reused. Aside from that, nothing else was swapped out as I didn't have any damage to my wiring harness.
      I was looking at the breakdown someone did of their 09A 5spd - http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=4187298 It looks doable, but after spending some time in my friend's engine bay, her car has the 09A and considering the valve body is side mounted on that transmission you might have more trouble changing that one in-car than I did with my 01M.

      Hey whats going on guys? after reading this thread it seems like these soloniods Maybe my buddies problem whom I am gathering info for.
      Here's his issue at hand:
      '03 gti tiptronic. The tiptronic function of the trany does not work at all(Ibelieve he broke it driving aggresively.) 'nor does his dash indicator light(maybe a bulb idk). But, the automatic put it in D and go works properly in all gears..
      So could this possibly be the issue, him needing to replace the solonoids? I also dont think he has any CEL's, but i maybe incorrect on that one.
      Thanks everyone.

      **EDIT: Never mind I just found this thread about the magnets, http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3471001 and that seems to be the issue he has. If anyone would like to confirm this I'd appreciate it.

      most helpful thread for trans. issues .

      I had the no cold shift issue and changed the N92 ,

      2 months later it started banging hard on the 2 to 3 & 4 to 5 shift on occasion , then a few other odd shift habits.

      I decided then to change all the solenoids ( should have done it in the first place )

      totally different beast now .

      if one fails the others are soon to follow .

      I now have a new N92 if anyone wants to buy !
