Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.
" After starting the car and trying to drive(intermittent/three occurrences so far) RPMs go all the way up, and it does not switch to the next gear. If you press on the gas RPMS would just go up, that tells me that it doesn't engage to gear #1."
Is the concern 1st gear does not engage in drive or 1st gear will not upshift to 2nd?
Without any hands on diag and results from someone else doing the diagnostics. I believe this to be a issue within your mechatronics unit causing your Dual clutch transaxle to not operate correct.
