Have Volkswagen Questions? Ask an Expert Now.
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. The symptom that you are having is a sign that one of your shift solenoids are faulty or the valve body is failing. Have you noticed a checked engine light on in the vehicle?
I understanding. Since you have already had the fluids serviced, then the next step is to have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes. The code(s) that is received will direct you or the technician to the problematic area. Once the code is retrieved, then testing and diagnosis can begin. This issue is usually caused by a failing shift solenoid or valve body and will require replacement to cure. If the issue is the valve body itself, then I usually recommend replacing/rebuilding the transmission.
Once you have the vehicle scanned and get the code(s), if you require information on the code(s) received, then you can always message me back here, and I will be able to supply information and advice on the code.
The is no telling how long it will last like this. You may can ride it for a year this way or it may stop shifting next week.
If you require more information on this issue and/or are not satisfied, let me know, please, and I will attempt to assist you further on this.
