I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Pleaseunderstand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problemwith the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computerdata/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; wejust diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch thevehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. Note there may be an issue where the complexity of the issue will require a Premium Service. This service will be an addition to the normal question cost. Usually it does not come down to this but keep in mind!! I am also going to direct you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please bepatient and permit me to do what I do best.I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” inreturn. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If thereis any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so Ican go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help youthrough it.Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail.
I do need some more information
please let me know
is this a manual transmission or automatic?
vin # will help me!!
does it go through the gears or does it seem it is stuck in one gear like 3rd gear?
ok. do you have vag com scan tool?
that is the one you need and then a laptop .
there is a program that you install and the cable is the key and then run the program with the cable hooked up to read codes and read values of what the ecu is reading . with your issue there are values needed to investigate of the low power issue you have!!
yes correct and yes it does!!!
that is just ok !! just keep in touch!!
ok you have a fault with the tiptronic shifter . what happens if you clear the trans codes does the trans act the same?
you should be able to clear when you read the codes there is a tab to clear . i do know of the gear monitorng fault but i would like to know if the any of the faults come back!!!..
are there any oil leaks on the transmission?
it doesn't have to be puddles but if there is a small leak and leaking for a while so if ou have a slippage the fluid level may be low!!!
to check the fluid level you will need vag com to monitor the temperature while you remove the small plug which has a tube of level.
just keep in mind expect the unexpected with this tranny!!!
