Volkswagen Transmission Repair

Volkswagen Transmission While Volkswagens are great cars, their transmissions have experienced problems over the last decade. In 2013 there was a recall issued for several models. Common problems include: faulty temperature sensors that do not properly indicate the temperture damaging the transmission as it runs "hot". Solenoid failures that can cause several problems and rarely sudden gear downshifts while driving. Another issue is the transmission's closed nature. This means changing fluids and simple servicing requires going to a shop.

The newest transmission Volkswagen has developed is called "Tiptronic Transmission". There are several variations within this family. These are not simple transmissions to repair. First, you have to note the stamped code and replace the transmission with one that has the same or similar code.
