Hello everybody, as im reading to see if anyone has previously posted any of the same problems that I have been having and hadn't found anything so im going to post a thread so I hope someone could help me. I have a 2003 VW jetta 1.8T obviously with the auto transmission. My car can shift from 1st to 2nd with ease but it always has a hard time shifting from 2nd to 3rd. Sometimes I can get it to shift easily with barely any torque but when I need a quick shift it wont shift until around 3100 rpms, and it usually kicks. So is it just the solenoids (N88, N89, N92)? Or is it something else? If I do replace these possibly bad solenoids do I need to do them all?And do I need a gasket kit if I take off the tranny pan?
Also im getting this rattling noise from the tranny almost like a grinding noise. What is that?
Thanks for reading this long post and hope you can help
