Last night after work, driving kinda hard.... my ASR/ESP light came on & my tranny started to shift very hard between gears,almost jumping into gear,1st to 2nd. (auto/trip, 1.8T).
I've been reading all sorts of info about this & what it could be. Everything from MAF,ABS,Break lights, tires/wheels,brakes,tranny etc....
What gives & where should I start ?
I've had this car for only six mths and it has been just one thing after another.It took 3 storms to turn my U- boat into a car again, fixing all the leaks/drains,fluids,lights, timeing belt etc....I'm trying!
I really like this car, but it dosen't like me.
Thanks for any ideas/info.

slipping then when it finally grabs its pounding the gear.

I would check fluid level first, which requires a drain and refill. These trans are not brick shit houses so be careful with them.

I would also get the car scanned. VAG-COM would be best, but Autozone, etc. might be able to pull something.

No problems....

I got up this AM & the car works fine, light is out.I'll keep an eye on it & get a scan next time it acts up, which could be tommrow. Thanks.

Even though the light is out, if there were codes before, they are still stored. I'd get the codes read anyway.
