    2011 Touareg TDI A/T Valve Body Part#

    Well, finally after three shops, a salvage yard transmission, two used valve bodies, and one trip to the dealership, the Touareg is finally fixed. Yes, this all started in April of last year! Dealership replaced the valve body with a new unit, that didn't fix it, but the tech line suggested...

    Bluetooth connection

    Recently got a new phone and I connected it to the bluetooth in my '14 JSW. I use a SD card for my music. With my old phone, I had it set up in the bluetooth, that my phone was a phone only and not a media player, so notifications didn't cause the radio to roll over to media player every time I...

    2011 Touareg TDI A/T Valve Body Part#

    Got a used transmission with 110k miles on it for $1140 shipped. My Touareg has 118k, so it's pretty close mileage wise. The shop that is going to do the replacement quoted me $1800 to swap, flush, fill, and reprogram the new transmission. Looks like I'm sitting at $3000 for the replacement...

    Well, the reprogramming didn't work. Transmission shop says it's cheaper to get a transmission out of a salvage yard, than it is to rebuild. Guess I'm in the market for a used unit.

    The VW specialist pin tested the harness and couldn't find anything wrong with it. They referred me to a transmission specialist that does work on VWs. Had the Touareg towed there. The owner of the transmission shop checked with the VW dealer across the street, and he thinks that the TCM needs...

    2011 Touareg TDI A/T Valve Body Part#

    Got a call from the shop yesterday, they had a Q7 in a few weeks ago with nearly identical faults. Replacing the transmission wiring harness fixed the problem with that one, so we are going to try replacing the harness on mine. Fingers crossed, it does the trick!

    After multiple rejections, I found a local, independent VW shop to look at it. It's scheduled for service 8/2, so we shall see...

    2011 Touareg TDI A/T Valve Body Part#

    Took the T-Reg to a transmission specialist yesterday. The downside was that he doesn't work on VWs (except Routans, because they have Chrysler transmissions). Even though he doesn't work on VWs, the owner took about 30 minutes of his time, hooked his scan tool up to the T-Reg and took it for a...

    Yes, at least according to the company that I purchased it off of.

    2011 Touareg TDI A/T Valve Body Part#

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge, oilhammer! I'm guessing then, it doesn't matter if the replacement transmission is of the same "code" as the original so long as it is the correct part number (0C8300036Q)? Mine is a "MHC" and I found several "MHN" transmissions.

    2011 Touareg TDI A/T Valve Body Part#

    If all a shop would do is swap out gearboxes, that's something that could probably do myself (I have access to a garage with a lift at work). Are these transmissions "plug-and-play" or do they require coding and programming to work with the ECU?

    Well, that didn't work... I replaced the valve body, and no change. I'm pretty close to giving up, and taking it to a professional. My question for you guys is this: Would I be better taking this to a VW specialist, or an automatic transmission specialist?

    Looks like my transmission is a MHC. Based on the lack of availability of solenoids (I can only find Chinesium solenoid kits, and they are as expensive as a used valve body), I think I'm just going to buy a good used valve body $339, and try that. At least valve body comes with a 30 day...

    2011 Touareg TDI A/T Valve Body Part#

    Replaced the filter and gasket, and refiled per instructions (rowed through the gears, warmed up ATF, drained off excess, etc.). Unfortunately, this did not cure the problems. I cleared the codes and took the T-Reg on a 15 mile drive, and this time same issues, but also two additional codes. The...

    TurboABA, you were correct, the transmission is stuck in 6th Gear. I flipped shifter into manual and it would not shift up or down. I just up picked this T-Reg with 118k miles for $8900, knowing it had a transmission problem. According to Carfax, it spent its life in SoCal and Phoenix, AZ. I...

    What you are saying about the transmission having only 3rd gear available makes alot of sense based on the symptoms I'm experiencing.

    So, I got the T-Reg in. It does have an issue with the transmission slipping (doesn't want to accelerate from dead stop without a lot of pedal, and it jumps a little when you shift into reverse). Didn't realize my old VCDS cable wouldn't work on this platform, so I had to trade it in on a...

    2011 Touareg TDI A/T Valve Body Part#

    Once I get it in, I'll run VCDS to see what's going on. I intend to start with just a fluid and filter change, and see if that resolves it. Service history on the vehicle is pretty extensive (looks like 1st owner always took it to the stealership for maintenance), but no mention in the records...
