      Ok so when driving home tonight i noticed while in tiptronic on my 2006 2.5l auto jetta that my car "slips" when shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear. when i shift up from 2nd into 3rd gear it shifts just fine and doesnt "hit" but it feels like the trans slips and the rpms increase (went all the way to redline) without the car going faster. but only happens going into 3rd gear. I kept driving and couldnt really duplicate the problem, but when i drive more aggressively i notice a slight 200-300 rpm increase before settling down. nothing hits or bumps or knocks. I already had the valve body replaced because it was hitting hard going from 2nd to 3rd gear. anyone got any ideas? This only happens every so often.

      Cars with the DSG trans will have DSG molded/written on the shifter, otherwise it will be the 09G. If it is the 09G than you have some options. You mentioned that you replaced the VB. Was this to alleviate your current complaint and it dodn't fix it or is this a different problem? On these VB's you can mechanically adjust the shift timing within reason, which is somewhat common when swapping in a new/different VB. Where did you get the VB and can you explain further when the problem occurs more exactly?

      i got the VB at the dealership about 2 months ago maybe sooner. It was to fix the problem of my car hitting hard when shifting into 3rd gear. My car is not a DSG its a regular 6 speed tiptronic automatic. the new VB fixed the car shifting hard into 3rd gear, but recently my car is shifting weirdly into 3rd gear. It isnt hitting hard anymore but now it likes to go up in RPM's about 300-500 before it actually shifts into 3rd gear from 2nd. You'll push the gear selector and it will recognize to go to 3rd gear but only after it increases the RPM's sounds like it spools up and then drops into the gear.

      Does this happen in auto or only in tip? We could probably tighten up that 2-3 shift. Does it happen more when it is cold or hot or is there no real correlation?

      so im taking my car to the dealer today and there going to look at what the problem is. I will post back whatever they tell me the problem is and whats causing it. I know there is another thread about this somewhere in the MKV forums from another member with a similar problem, hopefully this will clear things up for some people. Im pretty sure it valve body related. Only bad thing for me is before i take it to the dealership i have to take my testpipe off, CAI, and badgeless grill and replace with the stock parts. Should be fun.

      Not taking it to the dealer, when you put the stock intake on the car, it doesn't slip anymore... Weird
