Volkswagen Beetle: I just recently got a 2001 Volkswagen new

Customer Question

I just recently got a 2001 Volkswagen new beetle and the transmission shifts hard and revs up to 3 to 4k sometimes before shifting into 2 or 3rd is this a valve body issue or torque converter?

It is 98% a bad valve body.

Once you replace the valve body the transmission will shift smoothly.

Most likely there is a valve stuck in the valve body.
