im interested in this too
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.
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.
95 Golf 2.0 4dr. i've been having this transmission problem which when i accerate to 3000rpm, it jumps to 4000. i tried the method it seems work~ i tried the sport mode, cant' tell if it kicks. going to have the golf checked tomorrow. first VW car. looking forward~
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.
Auto trans fluid change or flush will not make a trans fail. Stop spreading the wives tale/urban myth.

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!
