Good day everyone. I own a Jetta 06 5-speed manual. I got a deal on another 06 but it was a DSG. In my unfortunate ignorance I made an attempt to pull it behind my truck as I had done with most of the vehicles that I owned before it including the 5 speed.
Of course this didn't last because the transmission overheated, started smoking and fluid seems to have leaked out all over the transmission from the top.
I tried starting it but it didn't start. It seemed as if it was locked up.
Can anyone please give me some advice in what the real problem might be before I go throwing parts at it unnecessarily.
I was able to get a used one from a salvage yard but there is no way to tell if it is good until I install it unfortunately. Any assistance would be appreciated.
I am actually in New Orleans now also and it is difficult to find someone here who even knows what VCDS means and if I did they were pricey.

Hello All,
I'm a route courier driver. The guy I contract with had a 2010 Jetta sedan that he finally sold back to VW...with 720,000 miles on the ODO!!! He had all his maintenance done ahead of schedule at Halsey Volkswagen in Portland, OR. Lee is the owner at Halsey, he'd know the vehicle if you had questions. They will go a LONG ways if you care for them
