does anyone still have 2nd gear shift issues after vb replacement?
Followed all the great helpful posts here I have replaced the valve body for 5-4 down shift issue.
I have the value body (refurbished) on for more than 3 month and drove more than 3000 kms, the only issue left is hard shift to 2nd gear. When shifting from 1 to 2 sometimes it's quite delayed, and when it finally shifted it's like a big push from the behind. Also still have the 3-2 down shift bang sometimes. When the vehicle is cold or hot, mostly it's fine, big bangs or delays happened when the car is between cold and hot. (some times when it's hot 1-2 hard shift still happens though, just not as often). I also noticed that the 1-2 hard shift usually happens when I'm driving up hills. I have reset the throttle and TCM a couple times and noticed the process of relearning because I can feel the difference each time after the reset. The shift will be smooth for 3-4 days and then the rough shift around 2nd gear comes back.
I'm thinking of redo the ATF and filter (did replaced a new one, but not from vw), and replace all the bolts holding the VB which I shouldn't have reused the old ones. I also feel this has a lot to do with the engine RPM so cleaning the throttle is also on my list. Any comment or advise is highly appreciated.

Thanks a lot,
