Signs Your Transmission is Wearing Out
If you are experiencing any of the transmission problems below, and you've checked the fluid condition and levels, then you may need to schedule a transmission replacement.
Gear Shifting Problems
While a manual sometimes slips when the clutch is worn, an automatic transmission should not have any slipping or jerking. Sometimes, CVTs will have a slight delay, but the engine RPMs will not rev up like when a transmission slips.
Many Volkswagen models have an automatic transmission warning light indicator on the dashboard. However, while it does tell you that a sensor has indicated that something is wrong, it does not tell you the exact problem, so have a professional check it out.
Burning smells coming from the transmission area are a sign of serious internal problems. However, it may also indicate that you have a leak and the transmission fluid is hitting the exhaust. In either case, this problem needs immediate repair.
Weird, Loud Sounds
Your transmission should not make clunking, scraping, or clicking sounds. Grinding sounds in a manual transmission may be a sign that you need a clutch replacement. However, a grinding sound in an automatic transmission may be an internal problem.
Reasons Why Some Transmission Problems Can't Simply Be Repaired
Transmission problems often take place deep inside the unit in places that are not easily accessible without fully disassembling the transmission. Some models allow for replacement of a small number of externally accessible parts. However, many transmission systems are completely sealed and need a full replacement when any part goes bad. Even if you can change certain parts, if your transmission is old, then a full replacement is the better choice.
Full Transmission Replacement
A full transmission replacement means that your Volkswagen's old, worn transmission will be swapped with a completely new one. While it sounds simple, this job is difficult to do by the average home mechanic, so professional help is essential. If you are in the Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park, Petaluma, and Windsor, CA area, the certified technicians at Hansel Volkswagen can do the work for you. We use genuine original Volkswagen parts, so you can be confident that the new transmission will fit and work properly.
