Post your own new thread. It's the right way to get the best amount of help.

No one can predict the future. Regular fluid changes should help, but there are no guarantees.

Huh? Your car only contains one "transaxle". (Do you perhaps mean "drive shafts?")

Sounds as if the torque converter lock-up clutch is remaining engaged. Why that would be the case ... requires the experts to diagnose. It could be internally binding, or it could be the control valve commanding it to remain locked when it shouldn't.

It would sure help to know exactly which make, model, and year that we are talking about here. But, assuming it is a VW TDI engine, the idling speed is electronically controlled and is not adjustable. What IS the idling speed?

Again, it would sure help to know exactly which make, model, and year. But this symptom is consistent with a torque converter lock-up clutch that is remaining engaged when it shouldn't.

I agree with GoFaster, TCC is probably stuck on. Could be TCC solenoid stuck or the Valve stuck. Best course of action is to pull pan and inspect, break open the filter to look for signs of metal failure. If its clean replace the TCC solenoid and while the TCC solenoid is out stroke the TCC valve to make sure it isn't sticking.

What does "seems" mean. Either its idling high or its not. I think all these cars had a tach. Whats the idle at? Or is it that your car is "bolting" so you are assuming the idle is high?

This might be the TCC stuck on also. Sometimes when TCC is stuck on it Vibrates the car, and sometimes it makes the clutch chatter so bad it makes noise. But maybe you have a major failure too that is making noise. No way to know through a forum post.
