Now I have as someone stated before a "sleep mode" transmission
Anyone have a fix on this one before my trans falls out???
I feel like I have a manual at times because I have to force my car to shift by letting off the gas.. HELP!!
My email is email@example.com if anyone has a suggestion or a question about the problems I've encounter.
Overall, my Jet-TA has been awesome
I've been able to work on it myself
Regular maintenance is easy!
Fixing basic problems are easy.
Even after being in an accident (not my fault and the karma wheel turn) I've had dealable problems until the shifting problem.
At 160,200 I really couldn't complain
The only thing I wish was I had other VW crazies to tell me what to expect so now I'm passing on what I know hopefully it will help someone!
