My 07 crafter has no reverse & is very reluctant to go

Customer Question

Hi Pearl my 07 crafter has no reverse & is very reluctant to go forward.I can get it to move forward if its level or on a down hill grade, otherwise it tries a few times to move but finds its too hard & gives up & goes into neural.When I do get it to move it doesnt stop unless I put it into neutral , if I dont it comes to a shuddering halt & stalls .Any ideas of what it could be cheers Gary
JA: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?
Customer: No no light .it stalls when comming to a stop where when the brake is applied it should go to neutral by itself
JA: What is the model of your '07 VW?
Customer: 07 vw crafter mwb van

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.I apologize for any delay.My info is limited on this here but I saw no one else had posted and wanted to see if I could help in any way on this.

If you havent checked to see if the fluid level is low check and see if this is the cause here as this can be a common fault for this issue.If this is or has been checked and found o.k. let me know so we can continue.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here as this is how I receive credit for my time.A 5 star rating is appreciated.Thanks Pete
