    Thread: APTuning Transmission Rebuild and Upgrade Services!!

    1. 11-12-2011 02:04 PM #141
      I just replaced my clutch/flywheel in my '04 jetta tdi. Thanks to you all, I was able to undertake this task. I have one problem. Before replacing the clutch, I was having trouble with 5th gear and forced it the shifter into 5th. Well, it did not grab and remaind in neutral. Now that the clutch has been replaced, all gears work great except for 5th which remains in neutral. Anyone have any ideas why?

      Thank you for all you assistance prior to this

      Sounds like something may have broke with the linkage when it was forced in.

      I would pull the end cap off and see if there are any broken pieces in there

      By the end cap, i imagine you mean the cover at the end og the transmission near the driver side front wheel. I did open it and when i spin the wheel, the gear turns while in neutral. There are no loose pieces in there and nothing broken as far as I can tell. Do I need to remove the transmission again? Thanks again for any advice

      Your gonna have to put it in 5th and see what is happening.

      In nuetral only the one gear should spin free, do they both spin free?

      What is your suggestion to fix the common torque converter lock up clutch error code on Tiptronic transmissions?

      sorry we don't do much with the autos but I believe the issue is usually the convertor or pump.

      I had the same issue up until december when something snapped and the car got stuck in 3rd gear. I haven't seen the car since then, and just this week had a chance to check it out. I'm fearing it's this problem and will need a rebuild - just hoping it didn't leave loose pieces in there to damage the rest of the components

      My wife's 99 Cabrio Auto with 246k miles has a problem with the diff. It shifts ok, but the humming sound get louder with speed. Do you sell the differentials separate from the trans? If so, how much? If not, do you rebuild them and at what price?

      Thanks,

      Nacho

      Do you guys have conversion kits or do you guys do transmission swaps? I wanna convert my auto to a manual. How much would it cost? 97 2.0L MK3 GTI.

      1985 VW Cabroilet Wolfberg Edition
      05-04-2012 10:25 AM #151
      My daughter was driving her 85 Cabriolet last week and she lost 4th gear. She told me there was no loud kind of sound. She was shifting from 3rd to 4th and missed 4th and hit 2nd. She then shifted back to 3rd and proceded to 4th and there was no 4th.

      The next day I re-bushed the linkage and replaced the linkage rods. I was not too worried about the "no 4th" gear problem thinking that when I replaced all the shifter linkage bushings, it would go away.

      I finished up the linkage bushings and adjusted the shifter and I have the same problem. The shifter does feel better than it did though....

      I manually moved the selector through each gear and the tranny did engage in all gears but 4th. There is a different feel when you manually select 4th compared to the other gears. You can hear and feel the shifter move the gears on all but 4th. When it goes to move to 4th, it feels like it is just the selector moving, nothing else.

      When the car is moving, you can't move the shifter into any of the other gears without the clutch but it will fall right into 4th no problem.

      I found two 9a's, a FN and a FF tranny but I like the idea of rebuilt tranny better than a used tranny, any chance of getting a price quoate to rebuild or swap the 9A?

      I have an 2002 vw gti vr6 5-speed, 02j I believe.

      The pendulum mount point has worn lose and had to be heliocoiled several times, It is now 3/4 inch. Can you brace the transmission in another location or reinforce the hole? I'm afraid that if I wear it out again I'll dig into the case.

      I have VF mounts all around. Some people have said the pendulum mount is to stiff for this application and wheres the hole.

      What can you do for me and how much?

      I've got a whirring noise coming from the gear box. I did a gear oil flush with it as per a tech bulletin i had come across. I'm not sure if the gears are going bad or if its the diff. any ideas?

      I had good luck (also with synchros) by adding 'moly'.

      Part of the problem is I don't know where the whirring is coming from. Is it the diff or is it the shift gears themselves? I found some shavings when I went to drain and replace the fluid. Gear box has about 100k miles on it now.

      07-25-2012 06:02 PM #159
      I have a 1996 MK3 Jetta Trek 2.0L that now has a quickly failing transmission in it and i would like to have it rebuilt with better than stock parts. I plan to upgrade my engine or atleast its performance making the car have much more hp than stock obviously. What would it cost to have you guys do a complete rebuit of the engine and tansmission to make this car almost untouchable by other tunners on the street?

      And I would also like a quote on just reubiling the tranmission with better than stock parts and an idea of how long this would take. OR..What would it cost to have you build me a new better than stock tranmission so i can continue to drive the car while its built? Would you offer any discount to me if i gave you the old tranmission out of the car once i recieved the new one and had it installed?

      Thank you
      Mike

      Please feel free to call with any questions, this is a serious inquiry

      I am completely rebuilding the shifter on 91 GTI. The book calls for Molybdenum Disulphide grease.
      I have some paste from Hondaline that is 60% MoS2, however it cautions against use on plastic. Since the shift ball is essentially a plastic bearing, I am concerned. Anyone has any experience to share or advice what I can use safely long term.
      Thanks

      We typically just use standard heavy duty automotive grease, the shift linkage isnt that high tech and have not seen an issue by using different kinds.

      Just sent my transmission to these guys last week. So far it has been a good experience with them. Tom has always taken my calls and answered any questions I have had. I will def keep you guys up to date when I get my transmission back. So far so good.

      Btw Tom I just sent you that email with the part that I am needing to replace on the transmission.

      Finally got my new transmission into my 95 Jetta. So far so good. Tranny seems to be great. Mine was so busted that Tom told me I would have to replace it, so he sent me a new one. He helped me out with any question I had and most of the time it was in a timely fashion. Would def recommend these guys. Thanks Tom.

      Hi, I am looking for a new or rebuilt 2H / 4K like close ratio 020 transmission for a MK1 8V or a reference to a reputable source. Thanks.

      Why not rebuild with smartshift from USRT no need to worry about corrosive greases

      Hey was wondering on how much it would cost for a built tranny? I have a mk4 r32 built with a turbo making 540 at the wheels
