#384 of 389 tranny issues
Jan 31, 2013 (7:18 pm)
I have a 2005 jetta GLI 1.8t 5 speed auto. im having issues mainly when its the tranny is cold i can manually shift first through third fine , but when it tries to go into 4 or 5 it just seems to hit neutral. usually once the tranny warms up , a good 10 miles or so(and the weather is not super cold) i can usually start getting 4 and 5th back. when i have the gears 4 and 5 working they run perfectly fine . the tranny shop briefly looked at it and wants to tell me i need a whole new tranny ..anyone run into this?

1st to 2nd gear is fine, but when shifting to 3rd, it slips completely as if its in neutral. If I shut the car off and let it cool down, problem goes away. Most days there is no issue, only when I drive lots at short distances (engine get to warm?) Dealer found just one code when scanning it: 00652 - Gear Monitoring: Implausible Signal. This could mean many issues.
Any help would be great!

Is your car an automatic?
If it is then have a shop check your transmission. Sounds like there's a problem with the transmission.
More than likely it doesn't have to do with the timing belt or oil leak.
Here's some info about oil leaks in case you're interested in knowing: https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/oil-fluid-leak-inspection

I have the exact same problem with my 2003 Jetta wagon TDI. Did you ever find out what it was? I would appreciate any feed back. No technician I've talked to seems to have a clue what it could be.

The issue was a faulty TCM (transmission control module) and the transmission wiring harness.
The error code causes the initiation of "limp mode" in the transmission. This restricts the transmission to 3rd gear to prevent damage until issue is resolved.
