Hey guys. So the transmission in our TDI 1.9L is failing in reverse only. Car has 109k on it. It usually takes a second to engage when it's cold and or first thing in the morning and or afternoon when it's been sitting for a while, and if the engines warm, you have to really gas it to get it going. 3k rpm's min typically. Our mechanic said we'd need to do a complete rebuild costing close to 4k. I know or have read about doing a tranny swap over to manual but my wife doesn't know how to drive it and is too stubborn to learn at this point. So I'm trying to see if this is a fairly common problem and or find out if there's any other options for us. New wife isn't an option either.
Any thoughts or help would be awesome. Thanks guys.
heading off to do a search - figured i'd ask in the meantime. Apologies if it's been asked 100 times before.
