    Thread: Automatic Transmission Jerking

    1. 04-22-2010 05:49 PM #1
      When I am driving and slowly coming to a stop my car jerks. When I acclerate after a complete stop my car jerks again. Has anyone else experienced this?

      Sorry had to do it.

      I believe mine does what you are talking about on occasion. Seems like a hard shift when I'm slowing down but I haven't noticed it speeding up.

      Mine does the same thing. It jerks and "bumps" as the gears are lowering to a stop. I also have a brand new transmission and it does the same thing. I think it has to do with the 150hp jettas and how they are geared or the MAF. I haven't figured it out yet.

      My 2006 2.5 does that occassionally. It seems more like an electronic gremlin than a mechanical issue to me. I can't reproduce it -- it's completely random.

      Cheers.

      It is likely the valve control in the transmission, my rabbit did this and dealership replaced the valve control and fixed the jerky shifting. My wife has a Jetta and does it as well. It is somewhat of a common issue.

      Do you mean valve body? If so, that didn't fix my problem.

      Was it covered under warranty or the after the warranty?

      inspect transmissions wiring harness and sensors, this happened on my toyota tundra and we pulled a sensor that connects to the transmission and controls shifting and 2 of the pins where fried/rusted off. hope that helps
