There is also the transmission shift reset (or whatever it's called.)

I'm not sure if it works with all models. (And you don't say which one you have)

Turn key on. DO NOT START.

Hold gas pedal to the floor for 10 seconds and then release. (I think)

Turn off ignition.

Restart and the transmission should start re-learning your driving pattern.

I'm going from memory, but a search should verify the correct procedure.

If it's a 2004.... chances are it is the transmission valve body.

Hey I’m experiencing this problem. My 2015 v6 gas jerks. It happens periodically only when decelerating. When decelerating down to 20-35km/h and then I press the gas to accelerate again it jerks trying to find what gear it should be in. Any ideas?

Try & describe the fault better than "it jerks" What mileage? VCDS has a gearbox reset option & may have a fault code logged. A low speed momentary loss of drive could be a transfer case issue rather than the gearbox.

The Touareg has 110,500km on it (69,000miles) it’s hard to describe but when I press the gas it’s like the brakes are momentarily pressed untill it finds a gear then lunges forward when the it ingages in gear.

If you are sure it is the gearbox then I would renew the ATF & scan with VCDS. Then if no improvement it would have to go to an auto transmission specialist.

Earlier models, 6 speed, suffered with valve body & solenoid issues and yours sounds similar.

You seem to have several threads with similar issues. Did the transmission warning come back? or the vibration from the rear? Did you manage to drain & replace the oil in the diffs?

What have you tried so far?

The transmission warning has not come back at all, I do have an appointment to get the diff fluids, transfer case, and transmission fluid/filter changed next week. I am going to get my mechanic to scan to see if there are any codes.

As for the rear vibration at 55km/h we diagnosed it as a rear drive shaft and centre bearing. New driveshaft and bearing has been ordered and installed when they do all the fluid changes. Turns out the driveshaft balance weights rotted off.

I’ll keep u updated next week see what the mechanic says.
Really hoping I don’t have a transmission issue
