2001 vw jetta vr6 125,000 miles automatic. I sometimes park on a slight incline. Twice when starting the check engine light comes on and it feels like the transmission is slipping (slightly higher revs than normal/ sluggish accelleration) After driving for about 2 hours the check engine light clears and the car behaves as normal. Any ideas? Should I go purchas an engine and powertrain warrany right away?

Welcome to Just Answer!!!Have you had the faults checked yet in the transmission control module ??
No I have not. Should they still be there if the check engine light clears? Do I need a Vw dealer to check or any generic scan tool?
Yes they will still be in the trans module even if the light is off you need to have a shop with a capable scan tool most shops dont have the scan tool to do this you may have to go to a vw scan tool facility . This needs to be the first step you take . I hope this helps.Please dont forget to click accept for my time and knowledge thank you !!!
