Any ideas on why a 91 Passat would have shifting problems. I have 1 thru 3 but no od. It drives fine in those gears.

od = overdrive = automatic

Thats what I was figuring, but hey I have a 91 Corrado Auto and where is my od? I believe they had the same tranny, I believe overdrive wasn't even an option back then I could be wrong.

Well have you changed your tranny fluid? If you haven't in a while I would suggest it.

Dont do it...... got to Bug aid in n. seattle! spend the 150 on having a good shop tell you whats wrong with it instead of a guess....
It could be a 20 dollor fix. if you DO have a bad trans, no matter how much money you toss at it. its gone.............
Do it right not half assed!!! I know i did.

Oh ok, pay $150 so thay can tell you you need to change tranny fluid, then tell ya it's another $150 for a tranny oil change.

What motor and tranny do you have?

Re: 91 pasat shifting funny (LILME)

Well heres and update. My B3 was acting up and I decided it was time to break out the big guns and blow her up...... I actually broke out the vag-com when I scanned it she showed a bunch of ground faults. so I went chasing the grounds and found a few that had issues. aka all fixed now.
