Signs of bad tranny

What would be some signs of a bad torque converter on a 2004 v8 Touareg?

I was sliding in the snow today and I smelled a foul smell coming from my car almost like the smell of burning clutch I stopped the sliding and drove it normally back home and when shifting from 3 to 4 right before shifting from third to 4 gear the rpm's spike real quick and then go back down as it shifts to 4th another noticeable problem on the way home was it felt slower then normal accelerating (not consistent just at times) is this possibly the tell tale signs of a bad tranny? Ps I let it cool down for a couple hours and then took it for a drive and everything seemed ok I wasn't having the same problems as I was after driving it hard in the snow anybody have any possible ideas as to why it was acting this way

Hi, i hope you had ESP off, you have to Drive it and see if there are any irregularities that are not caused by frustration, As from the beginning it can seem very wrong and then everything normal again. kind regards, Nikoloz

sounds like the stability control was probably working overtime, if you were driving "hard" in snow. the smell was most likely coming from the brakes, they are employed by traction/stability control.

I had the esp off while sliding in the snow and when I went to drive it this morning the shift from 2 to 3 the rpm jump up and then it shifts this indicates tranny issues to me from past experience with other cars but the tregs tranny is a lot more complicated then my 03 tagged tranny lol could it possibly be a VB issue?

From everything I've read here about the valve body dying, I don't remember slipping clutch like symptoms. The issues are clunking between upshifts and downshifts abruptly (seems like 2-1 and 4-5).

While it probably won't do anything have you given the reset a try?

Turn on the ignition but don't fully start the car
Push and hold gas pedal all the way down for 10 seconds and release
Turn the ignition off

yes I have done the transmission reset and had no luck with the symptoms getting better. I think I'm looking at a transmission rebuild here. Any ideas on pricing of a tranny rebuild?
