2002 Volkswagen Jetta 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 115000 miles
The car is having a problem shifting from 1st to 2nd gear usually when the car is cold. Dealer quoted $4000 for new trans, and a repair shop quoted $3700. The car is currently at AAMCO who ran a diagnostic which came back with only the triptonic code which they said shouldn't be the issue. Currently they are running an electric diagnostic as they believe the problem could be something other than the transmission and possibly something electronic.
Any ideas of what could be wrong? I have searched the internet and it seems there are many people with the same problem, but doesn't provide a clear answer of what the issue is/was. Seems most people paid for a new transmission only to have the problem return or more transmission problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
