      I have a quick question, I just changed the fluid and replaced the filter on my 1999 01m. I used a new gasket on the trans pan and it ran great for a couple weeks. However now there is trans fluid leaking from the new gasket on the pan and I cant figure out why? any help is appreciated!

      make sure the gasket is not twisted or bunched. that can easily happen. or maybe u just didnt torque down enough. try it. ive never had a leak.

      I just did the same (filter and gasket) on my 01m. When I started filling if with fluid it started to drip out from around the new gasket. I tightened the bolts a lttle more and wham, one stripped and the fluid came out even faster... I drove it to my local Tranny guy. I'm done. I have bad luck

      ouch. yea dont tighten that much. just 45* or so when it bites.

      Yeah previous owner had stripped out the one bolt hole but luckily you can just drill those holes out and put on a through bolt. I guess I am going to try another gasket and hope that helps.

      So i did a solenoid change (n89) after my 01m was going into limp, but shifted fine when the code was cleared out.
      also changed the filter and fluid obviously.
      I Started the car and had 14 codes and all were related to the trans, codes for all solenoids came up. cleared them and took the car around the block and it still feels like its somewhat in limp mode, it doesnt wanna shift right. what could be the deal here?

      throttle adaptation? sounds like the only thing missing. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      how do i do that? isnt that something that it should do on its own? it feels like it hasnt learned the shift points or something

    9. 07-04-2009 05:28 PM #109
      no. clearing codes wont adapt the tb. that is separate. u can do it with vagcom or the manual way (key on, hold gas pedal 10 sec, key off, start car, touch nothing, wait 5 min, drive ) if that doesnt work, then we gotta make sure all codes (ecu and tcu) are gone. report back [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I tried doing the manual thing like 3 times before clearing the codes out. i disconnected the batt. for a few mins too. why would the TB randomly need readapting? and what does that have to do with the way it shifts?

      Great post !!
      I have a 2001 Beetle 2.0 auto trans. It will not shift into third unless youback off throttle. Trans shifts well in all other positions and aspects. Yes I reset with key on and throttle to floor. No codes. No engine light. I replaced the third gear solenoid. Did not help Next I am going to Ohm the harness at the connector.
      Any othe rbright ideas?
      Thansk in advance,

      on obd2, the tb is tied in with the tcu. shift points and such are tps regulated. i cant explain it beyond this, but i do know for a fact that anytime tcu codes are cleared, tb must be reset. bentley indicates this also, among other things, when to reset tb. tranny is one of them. disconnecting battery clears ecu, not tcu. resetting tb will also clear tcu manually (2 birds, 1 stone).

      man this transmissions sucks! now i have slips in second and fourth and sometimes it feels like slipping in D when engage first,

      no codes? fresh fluid, good level?

      no codes, i change the fluid a month ago and the level is ok

      Always appreciate everyone's time and input.
      Thanks again Rychas1.
      Ohm values for the harness is all within specs except the TFT Sensor. Which is at 164.8 instead of 190K-200K. Temp does not seem to affect the way it shifts. Does not change after warm up. I have reset manually a few times now. Car seems to be a little pepier, but no change in trans. I know shifts are also controlled by pressure. So is this a Valve body issue/ or is it the clutch pack?
      Thanks in advance again for any and all input.
      I will tell uoi a little history of the car. I picked it up a couple of weeks ago, and it had been overheated due to failure of the waterpump of course. Although seller did not tell me this. I discovered this on the way home. No biggie just kept AC on and it did not overheat.
      I have heard that overheating can and does cause auto trans problems due to shared cooling design. Why VW did this remains a mystery.
      Whatcha think?

      Anything I do, does not change this obviously mechanical issue. I do not know if you read my post. But OHM values are within specs for the internal harness at the connector, except the TFT Sensor. 164.8K instead of 190K-200K called for. Valve Body? Clutch Pack??
      Thanks again,

      sorry i couldnt reply sooner. honestly, i dont know about the clutch pack. valvebody possibly, yes. and that doesnt always throw a code either. it could use a good cleaning. see royer25's DIY. u could always just swap a known good tcu and see if any changes occur. the mk4 may have more ecu/tcu integration than the earlier cars, from what ive heard. u may have to reset them together at the same time (ecu and tcu) and then see what happens.
      so recap..
      1. ecu/tcu reset at the same time
      2. tb adaptation with vagcom (many people forget this critical step)
      3. swap good know tcu and see if any changes
      4. new internal harness (since temp sensor is not reading to spec)
      5. clean valvebody
      6. reset tcu to default settings after every single change!
      and as always, report back [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      o, and the tft sensor is built into the harness. so either way...new harness! but check the above first.

      I always reset, new fluid and filter when I changed out N90 third gear solenoid. Harness a definate question regarding TFT Sensor, but would like to know if that would cause this or cause a fault reading and cause a type limp mode. But then I would get somekind of code thrown for TFT sensor. maybe not. ?
      I would not mind dropping the Valve body, but worry about breaking solenoid clips. Wil have some more tests run at different repair facilities. Will see if VW will diag it for a nominal fee. Hah!

      yea if u have that access, definitely let them take a shot. then u know exactly what to fix. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] and the tft sensor may not throw a code. its in the harness!

      Just an update on my Tranny. The tranny guy hade the same problem. Turns out the pan was warped. He put a new pan on and no more leak. I was happy since it wasn't something I did.

      I swapped out internal harness. Trans seems a little more positve, but still will not shift into third without peddling throttle.
      I did not drop valve body. Shouldhave now. I did pull all solenoids and c\hecked ohm values. All within specs. Pulled valve needles and all seem to move freely and had good spring response. I did notice on opposite side from shift solenoids, that there are a couple of plugs. are these supposed to be flush? or inset? The one directly opposite N90 seems like it might be backed out a bit. Is this spring pressure adjustment?
      Or????

    24. 07-13-2009 03:38 PM #124
      any pics of this?

      I HAVE GOT SIMILAR PROBLEM, WHEREBY MY SELECTOR INDICATOR ON THE DASHBOARD COULD NOT SELECT THE APPROPRIATE LEVER, LETS SAY SHIFTING FROM P - R, as soon as i turn the key on, the selector will moved from P - D, when i move the shift to any level. instead of it to show the various selector that the lever moved through, it stuck at D, on the dashboard.. I want to know what is causing this..
      Now if i want to order for solenoid. would i be given all the 7, with the colour coding to it. i am asking this because, 5 has brown/yellow colour, while 3 has black rubber tip where you plug the harners. please, i want to know, because i really want to order for all the 7 solenoid. thank you..
      pls prescribe for me which type should i order on makcontrans. where 89$ type or 26 $ .. thanks i await to hear from you..
      I would like to know if the selector which display in the dashboard also has a sensor
