Friday morning the car got stuck in 3rd gear. Engine revved in as if in neutral. Has been 1 owner, me fully serviced, never driven by a teenager as suggested and Volkswagen only wants to pay 50% of the overall cost to install a re-conditioned transmission. So, sitting still in neutral with your foot off the clutch, it makes the noise? It didn't cause me any problems per say other than some noise and a vibration that I really did not notice until just before it broke. Basically what happens is when driving I shift into 3rd gear and when I go to shift out of 3rd it comes out of gear but it's like it hits a brick wall and will not go into the home position.
This happened for a few moments, and solved itself. Its slipped out of 1st twice today as it didnt go in properly. One obvious exception to the general view that tested items should be in reasonable nick is in the testing of the braking system. Just about audible inside the car if you listen for it, but quite pronounced outside. So im hoping the Stiff gears are what you've quoted from the Haynes manual and maybe incorrect transmission oil. And they flat out refused. Mine acted exactly as described for quite a while.
I bought the car used with a complete service history. I was barely rolling when it failed and it still scraped up the housing pretty good. They said it costs too much money. I put it in neutral then went to put it in 2nd and it went but nothing there. Gearchange feels better as well.
I have warranty though so if it goes in the next 40 days or gets much worse ill get it done. . Working my clutch changes the sound out of my transmission too, but it tends to quiet a bit when I push in the clutch, which is the opposite of yours, correct? It will probably cost me a few hundred more but seems like a better long term solution. Fault has occurred over 10 times and is becoming more frequent and for longer durations. Unexpectedly the dsg transmission will got to neutral and the car will be gin to slow. The clutch just sticks down now and again and pops up afterwards.
Yeah garage is good, I know the bloke that owns it, he said I gotta slip the clutch to get it into 1st. . So with that, let's go and get started. Throw my little mac scanner on it some codes come up. This behavior is infrequent occurring, 6 times over ~ 3000 miles. I am going to take the car home for now.
Cars were flying by on both sides and it nearly caused a collision. I'm not up on how the vw clutch is set up but in the old Chevy days a lose clutch fork would rattle like crazy and quiet down when depressed. It's still a little jerky on and off the throttle, although miles better than it was, so I suspect one of the others is past its best too. Do a little search and it comes up as the g68 under the tranny mount. First introduced by Porsche, the Tiptronic is not an electronically activated manual transmission, as one might find in some higher-end applications. This will cause rapid deceleration, like slamming on the brakes, but so far has yet to actually damage a transmission.
He won't guarantee that will fix the issue so I am inclined to just buy a used automatic and spend the money on a complete replacement. Anyhow, the grating noise has now completely gone, together with all manner of other strange clicks and vibrations which I never really noticed until they weren't there any more. The problems with this transmission are hard shifts from gear 1 to 2, erratic shifting from gear 3 to gear 4 and a shudder in the torque converter. No whines or poor shift quality to suggest lack of oil, but that's no excuse for not checking it which I will do this weekend. No amount of fiddling with the shifter will get it back into gear.
They are very hard and can be very tricky to diagnose. Not a bad job, truth told. Starts in first then shifts to third. My confusion in this case came from thinking the engine mounts were testable, which it appears they are not. All the rest of the gear selections work perfectly. I was just driving not getting crazy or any sort of thing. And wait about a second or two without touching the accelerator in order for a clutch to engage a gear and allow me to move.
Not a synchro, it won't go in stopped, moving, running or shut off. I'll start this off with a few months ago, I went on a trip and along the way noticed that the car wouldn't get into gear. So, I recently picked up mt 2000 vr6 has 200k on it runs great well taken care of. It's been a second car for the last 5 or so, but regularly used. Any ideas what it could be?? If when your car is shifting gears, it goes thddddddth, thddddddth you may be experiencing a transmission problem. If it turns out the fluid is low can i just top it off? The shifter went into neutral and would not come out until I forced it back into drive. I can also shift the car into gear when started and not push the clutch in.
