This has happened with every person who has driven the car, even very experienced drivers with manual transmission. She told me that she never had any problems shifting until she let it sit for two weeks while she went to cape cod. The failure mileage was approximately 21,000. Will never step foot into this building again. I have been real happy with it but think this should not have happened and could be dangerous. The car restarted, and I made it a few miles towards the dealer before it happened again, luckily on a low-traffic street. There are 28 choices for the 2009 Volkswagen Jetta Transmission Assembly!!! No grinding noise at all and very very stiff when moving the stick shift laterally from first to fifth.
He said he disconnected all the linkage and it was smooth but he had trouble when trying to shift the trans using the counter weight on top of the trans. The facility is nice and organized. Also, instead of seeing if there was any way that my negative situation could be helped, I felt that I was more or less lectured about my past decisions as if I were a child. When my husband has attempted to drive it, he stalled it five times in a row the first drive, and in subsequent drives stalls it every other pull out. Now, if you have your car level and are simply adding fluid until it drips from the fill hole; then you can skip ahead.
The fuel rail, injectors, pump, tank, and all lines will need to be replaced as the result of the pump failure caused bits of metal flakes to circulate about the fuel system. The contact stated that while attempting to accelerate, the vehicle would not move and the engine would not rev. The dealer reports that the dual-mass flywheel and pressure plate have failed. I have notice that the car is extremely easy to stall when attempting to accelerate in first and second gears. The car, having a manual transmission, was still in gear and slowed down very quickly without any warning to other drivers no brake lights. Notes: Some vehicles come with several transmission options and could be very confusing.
The diagnosis and listed repairs were determined by the Volkswagen dealer. First, remove the center screw in front, right at the front lip. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the contact was informed that the transmission needed to be replaced. Also transmission jumps or surges forward or back after putting in drive or reverse. Additional modifications in the Jetta array put balance controls, heated seats and heated up washer nozzles put as common products. I like the car and have no problems with the transmission at highway speeds.
They do not have any hidden fees, all of the paperwork was clear, no surprises. This transmission unit includes a transmission case, valve body, tail shaft and housing, torque converter automatic only , and all internal lubricated parts. The failure mileage was approximately 7,000. I have driven it myself and can confirm that there is an issue. If you are replacing what you drained, be sure to measure the same amount out so you don't overfill. They will need to be replaced before installation.
The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer but the dealer could not find the cause of the failure. It seems the injection timing may be too far advanced. The current mileage was 4000 and the failure mileage was 600. This transmission unit has been inspected, tested and ready to ship. The dealership is aware of the problem, but is unwilling to fix it sitting that they cannot reproduce the circumstances surrounding the problems. The salesman was extremely polite and transparent with his information of the vehicle. It generates a zesty 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque.
The clutch was replaced by the dealership in order to complete sale. I will not give up on this and hope you can assist me. I have noticed that you must speed up significantly in first gear before shifting to second. There were no prior warnings. Signs said 7 and it was only 630 I was not happy. Discussion of this problem is often obfuscated by shame, denial and recriminations about drivers ability to adequately operate a manual trans and clutch.
I smelled something burning transmission fluid, most likely and parked it immediately. When I got home, I searched online for what it could be and it turns out I am not the only one this has happened to. Now we need to replace the fluid back in the transmission through he fill hole. When I took my car to the dealer seeking help to no avail I wanted to find the article online but instead found other reviews and forums complaining about the same issue. This is a known issue and vw has replaced this flywheel with a more reliable design.
