  1. MKV GTI
    Hey guys, sorry for the semi-long post in advance! I ended up buying my 2009 VW GTI DSG @ 64K miles back on 11/12/17. 2 weeks later I ended up getting misfires from cylinder 2 so I decided to change the spark plugs and some small things as well as a full car diagnostics at pep boys(in case...
  2. MKIV GTI
    Hi all, Recently purchased a 2003 GTI which has been running great for the past month or so. However recently it has had intermittent issues with juddering and shaking when I put it into first or reverse gear. It is the 5 speed auto tiptronic trans (JP JC7). If I then move it back to neutral or...

  5. MKV GTI
    When I shift into third it makes an awful grinding noise as if I am not using the clutch. However, if I shift before about 2500rpms it does not grind. After doing research and looking around I've come to the conclusion that it's the synchro and started calling places in the area to get quotes...

    Car won't go into 1st gear, Son said he went to 1st from 3rd at about 30 mph. Said he heard a noise, now can't shift into 1st. All other gears seem to be fine. ANY Suggestions??????
  7. MKVI GTI
    So I have a Stage 2 MK6 GTI with a Stage 2 SB Endurance clutch that is only 5 months old. I definitely ride the car hard. Yesterday I tapped a curb while taking a corner, it was a light tap since it was the rounded kind. Well my brake fluid light came on and off a couple times right after that...
  8. MKV GTI
    Hey guys I'm new here and need some input before I replace everything, I can start my car just fine but when I do the clutch will stay on the floor I can pull it back out by hand but it doesn't get any pressure back even when I try pumping it. I can put it in gear and do whatever else I want but...
  9. MKIV GTI
    Hey everyone I'm new to the forums and was wondering if anyone has any thoughts on a 1.8t gti with a full tdi transmission swap. I realize it will have lower gearing and decrease acceleration, but I am just wondering by how much. I'm trying to decide if the motor will have enough torque to...
  10. MKIV GTI
    Hey guys. So I thought I'd share my recent findings for gear oil. About a month ago I got the clutch replaced in my car, and the mechanic asked if I wanted to replace the OEM fluid with Redline, assuming he meant the MT90, so I had it done. Over time the gear box started grinding more and...
  11. MKV GTI
    So, I have a 2006 MK5 FSI with DSG with 94,000 miles on it. Last week, I went to the dealer due to a strange *whirring* noise I was hearing when ever I moved from a cold stop. I find out my transmission was dying. I took it to an independent transmission shop that my mom trusts and recommended...
  12. MKV GTI
    Hey guys, i was recently just driving my gti and suddenly my clutch felt like it wasnt grabbing anymore and the clutch pedal stayed on the floor when I pushed it down. Now even with the clutch pedal stuck down, i still cant switch between gears. Anyone have this problem before or have any...
  13. MKIV GTI
    I have a MK4 GTI and currently have some tranny issues. At times it's rough to get it into 3rd gear, it seems like it's a popping feeling out of 2nd and not smooth at all going to 3rd. Sometimes really rough going into 3rd. Normally every other gear seems fine with no other problems. My clutch...
  14. MKVI GTI
    I've been trying to find out what's causing my car to drive so sluggish at time and other times it would drive flawlessly as it should. It's not as bad as it used to be after the fuel pump was replaced by the dealer. So this is exactly what happens. I have the manual gear box, and lets say I'm...
  15. VW GTI Problems / Complaints
    PO punched a hole in the trans case, patched it, traded it in... then I bought it. I had it patched again in the past five years I have had it but it is leaking again and it is time to bite the bullet and get another trans. $2500 for the trans, clutch, and labor on top of the other $1200 I...
  16. MKIV GTI
    So i got an annoying/nasty grind going into third gear sometimes, so I want to change the gearbox oil in my 5 speed. Hopefully that will solve it... anyways, I've been looking around at what fluids are good. All I know is that I have to get something that is easy on brass synchro's. I had my eye...
  17. MKIV GTI
    I think the shift linkages on my 2003 gti needs to be adjusted. It feels like hitting a small wall everytime I shift. Especially 3rd gear. Are the shift linkages on the transmission hard to find? Some people said I need to take it to a shop and use a hoist to find them. Is this true? Haha and...
  18. MKIV GTI
    The dealership told me never to change the transmission fluid in my manual transmission or else i'll start to have transmission problems. Is this true?
  19. MKIV GTI
    all of the sudden i cant get into fifth gear.. no grinding or funny noises.. just simply wont let me into fifth gear at all. sometimes at high rpm it will go smoothly into fifth, but for the most part no fifth gear. anyone ever experience this?
  20. MKIV GTI
    This is my first stick shift car, so I don't know much about how shifting is "supposed" to feel. But getting into 1st takes a little work. When I switch to 2nd, I can feel 2 points of resistance. 1.Shifting OUT of 1st and 2.shifting into 2nd. When shifting quickly, this makes a "clu-clunk"...
