i have a 2001 jetta vr6 auto trans code: FCZ
just recently it started acting up. basically i don't know what the problem is.
symptoms of my problem:
when i put it into drive 1st gear doesn't engage.. until the rpm's get to exactly 1000. then it shifts into gear, then once i come to a stop sign or anything to do with stopping it acts like it shifts back into neutral then i have to baby it to 1000 rpms so it doesn't slam into gear and if i go up any kind of incline in 1st gear only it disengages and the rpms rev way up? can anyone tell me what this could be or if some one has had a similar problem,
i just asked a reputable transmission repair shop and he told me that i would be needing a whole new transmission.
