  1. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Hey all, I'm probably just going to end up at VW for this, but my 2014 TDI R-Line surges when shifting from 4-5th gear only. It happens the first time, but then is normal after that regardless of whether or not the car is up to temp or cold. Examples: Cold start in morning, first go through...
  2. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Howdy Friends, the 'ol treg-o-sauros rex is back on stands. This time the carrier bearing cage failed, seems to be pretty common. Pulled 6 bolts in front by tranny Pulled 6 bolts on CV joint into diff Pulled all bolts under carrier bearing Banged like hell to get it out of the rear end, tried...

    I have 170k miles on my 2004 V10 TDI, that I use to tow a 22' camper. After the engine gets warmed up, at about 40mph while in 3rd-4th or 5th gear, I will hear a LOUD jack hammer noise. When I instantly let off the accelerator, the noise stops. Then I engage Tiptronic to shift into another gear...
  4. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Hello all! My beloved 2004 V8 just his 100k miles last week (I bought it in 2015 at 47k) and the shifting has gotten pretty aggressive over the last six months since I first noticed the hard shifts from 4-5 accelerating and from 3-2 decelerating. From discussions and a visit to the shop, it...

    07 Touareg 3.6L - cant get the PRNDS block to read what gear the truck is in. Here is what I've done so far: Replaced Gear position selector (neutral safety switch) and wire harness from gear box to neutral safety switch. Replaced the whole assembly inside the car for the shifter, checked...

    So I was donated a 07 touareg. Did know where to start but new the truck was in need of a battery and was in limp mode prior to towing home. Started with the batter and indeed it was in limp mode, ran a basic code reader through it and these 2 popped up: P0748 Pres Ctrl Sol. A Circuit...

    2016 7P V6 3.0 diesel 180kw 8sp, 73,000km I know this is a recurring theme, but thought I’d post our experience. After towing a 3.2T van for around 25,000km on a few trips our drivetrain developed a resonant groaning sound at about 1400rpm especially when loaded, that was very disturbing...

    Hello, I want to know if it is needed to change the oil by draining it out , having the new oil clean the transmission by flushing it in and out with a pump and when its totally clean fill it with the totally new oil again . Or just drain it and fill it with the new oil ?
  9. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Hey All, I was planning to get the differential and transmission oil checked from my dealer to see the condition of it , if it requires a replacement or not. But they mentioned that the 2013 variants don't require an oil change until and unless the customer requires to or if there is a leak ...

    Hello all! I currently have a 2008 VR6 Touareg with 172k miles on it and have recently discovered the valve body harness is permeating ATF from my transmission into my TCM. It was discovered while I was trying to diagnosis a no-start condition from water entering the drivers footwell two months...
  11. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Hi guys, I just bought a 2013 Lux 3.6L V6 Touareg, running 56000 miles. There is a "gear collision" abnormal sound driving me crazy. VW Dealer said radiator support air duct broke. But I don't think that the problem. Because this noise only happens when car slide in low speed. The rest of the...

    Hi all, just picked up a 2009 VR6, has only 113k on it and I bought knowing that the transmission had some issues. Had assumed it was a valve body, as the seller stated as such and gave me the number to the Mechanic he uses. Gave the mechanic a call and he confirmed it, but also was nice...

    transmission does not shift in DRIVE. I have to use Tiptronic to shift gears. But when I come to a stop and place it in PARK it resets and shifts automatically for a little while till I come to another stop. I have to keep placing it in PARK to reset and it shifts normally. In SPORT it shifts...
  14. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Hi all, I've been scouring the forums and seem to find a mixed response to my question, and would really appreciate any feedback. I'm looking at a 56k mile 2009 3.0 TDI, full service history, but no notes on the gearbox oil change. The dealer says its not essential and that "the oil does not...

    Hi friends, Got a 2007 T1 V8. Love it. Usually I drive in "D" and shift to "S" only to overtake or handle beamers at traffic lights.......:) Today however, I could not shift to "S". Everything was running fine, the lock to "S" just wouldn't release. Restarted the car, alas to no effect. :cry...

    I just purchased a Touareg with transmission problems for very very cheap, and I had a few questions. I am experiencing no gear changes in drive, for example when accelerating after I hit about 15-17 mph when it feels like I'm about to shift instead its like I have gone into neutral. I also have...

    A huge shout out to Gnits as his post for Transmission, Differential, and Transfer Case fluid changes for first generation Touareg’s was spot on. I am updating this for the second generation. Specifically, I own a 2015 VW Touareg TDI with 127,000 miles. I am the second owner and the engine oil...

    Hi All, I've been battling some issues with my valve body over the last few weeks. I had the common 2-3 "clunk" but only when under heavy load and usually up significant inclines. I ordered a reman from a shop in Florida. Once I put it in, I it was shifting great when cold, but as soon as...
  19. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Hi all, seems like this topic has been beaten to death, but I don’t see anyone with a similar experience. I have a 2004 4.2. I was having occasional hard shift from 2-3 with a teeth shattering bang. So I picked up a reman valve body from Florida and installed. Did the proper fill procedure...

    Hi All-- it's been some time since I've been on here. Obviously the Treg has been doing amazing things form me (had a 2011 TDI Sport when I joined and now have 2014 TDI Sport "with the fix" and with 118,000 mi; all original). What's happening is that at a full stop or when rolling at low...
