Mk3 vr6 auto trans need help!
« on: November 06, 2017, 06:03:39 pm »
Hello I am a proud owner of a 1997 Vw golf mk3 vr6 but I am having auto trans problems. It seems to not want to go off in drive in first but seem like I goes off in third but you can manually shift it into first perfectly but second doesn’t seem to exist and goes into third in 2nd gear option
Please need help been pulling my hair trying to figure it out
Thanks

This happened to me when I disconnected the trans ecu. It's under rear seat 💺. See https://photos.app.goo.gl/zDNZ22WLF25qaUoI3
Scroll down near the bottom....
Your computer might have stopped or might be disconnected like mine was.
Good luck 🤞

You need to pull the fault codes and see what's going on. I have a spare trans if yours isn't worth repairing

Can't help you with an auto box at all I'm afraid?
But do have a R32 engine and 6spd gearbox if you felt like owning a manual car at all?
