2001 Jetta VR6 01M auto 156k miles.
Engine is on the stand getting a rebuild(head gasket, timing chains/guides). Trans is on the floor. I got no codes from the car prior to the blown head gasket.
Trans shifted normal, but slipped a bit mostly on takeoff. I am thinking while it is out, I might as well rebuild it. Has anyone else done their own rebuild? I have not drained the fluid yet but I expect mud from it.
I have rebuilt several trans(4R100, C6, 4L80E, 700R4, etc), but never a VW, so new to me. Any tips?
I am going to turn this into a 01M rebuild thread as I take pics of the rebuild, but I want input from those with more experience inside these trans.
Right now, I want to know what to watch out for, specs, do I need special tools? etc. while I am rebuilding the motor. Thanks.
