      the best way to play with tranny is to recode transmission with vag-com.look at my thread.

      I did the "tap twice" step with our '00 VR6 Jetta 4spd, and all I can say is, "THANK YOU!" to those who figured this out!
      The car FINALLY works like I expeted it to, when we got it 5 years ago!

      Now, if I put my car into "sport" mode, and want to change it back to "Ecconomy" or "Normal" mode, how would I do that??
      Just asking in case I have to make another 5 hour road trip and don't want to waste gas.
      Thanx all.

      I think VW has complicated things. I've seen many cars (OLDER cars too) with the basic, Econo and Power mode (or Normal or Power Mode) switches. Why didn't they just do that??? All this programming with Adaptive tranny etc... what a nightmare. AND they don't tell you about it in the manual. There are times i was to drive slow, it should be just a flick of a button.

      All I can say is THANK YOU SO MUCH! Everyone with a MKIV Auto needs to know about this. Pushing the throttle 2 times didnt do anything, but the 20 seconds did. I didn't know my 2.0 could even go like that! Thank you so much, that has put a massive smile on my face.

      I did this procedure on my '03 Tip. I use tip 99% of the time.
      Am I imagining better faster smoother shifts ? (20 sec reset)

      I wonder the 20sec would work on my 2000 golf turbo?

      walk out there and try it
      Auto trans fluid change or flush will not make a trans fail. Stop spreading the wives tale/urban myth.

      Does this proceedure also apply to a 1999 passat 1.8t, with tiptronic trans :
      Does the 99 passat have the MK4 trans ?

      I just did this on my 05 Jetta TDI which has been shifting odd since I bought from my sister. She never had a problem so hopefully this takes care of the "missed" shifts, slamming into gear, coming out of OD at 76mph, etc. No codes either!! I will find out on the drive home!
