Wont shift into S (SPORT) after heavy 4WD
Yesterday I did some heavy offroading with my touareg 2008 V6 FSI:
- Sand with High only
- (Very) Slippery mud: had a lot of trouble with High, then Low and then Manual Diff Lock; until I realized I had to turn of ESP, move into manual gear and then I easily made it out from very difficult mud situations in 4High
- Got stuck in a very deep “small mud pond” and had to be helped by another car with a rope while I reversed in almost all combinations of gear until we luckily made it out.
When returning home, I felt in the highway that the gearbox now behaves a little weird:
- Makes a loud and heavy “hummm” when going over 80kph on the highway and feels over demanded if you know what I mean
- Gearbox wont go into S (SPORT) anymore
I continuously monitored engine and oil temp and everything normal.
What may I have messed up? Will a throttle reset fix this?
