My trans went on me the other day and need to get my car back on the road ASAP! A guy I know has a wrecked 2002 jetta 2.0. Will that trans work for my car?? What would be the pros and cons if it did work?
i think they mean more so on the automatics? the manual transmissions seem to be more sturdy. but you are putting a 2.0 trani on a 1.8t. idk if its built differently so it might not be able to handle the power of the 1.8t as opposed to the 2.0. idk i dont think i know enough to answer it. i figured i would try since you posted double question marks lol
just get your trans rebuilt. if antying you can grab a tdi 5th gear to get better highway cruising MPGs. 2.0 transmissions are not really designed for power. There might be a strong trans code, but you wont beat $250 to get your car back on the road.
