What's wrong with VW 01M auto tranny?

Asked by Jul 01, 2012 at 11:49 AM about the 2000 Volkswagen Bora

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just bought a 2000 VW Bora 2.0L AT (01M) with 85K kms. mileage.  Car doesn't move in D mode. It only
moves forward when you lightly step on the gas but with a strong and abrupt jerking motion. Problem
slightly disappears after 30 minutes of continuous driving.  Same jerky acceleration occurs when the car is
stationary/neutral or when you put it in D after reversing the car.  Please help.

Possibly the transmission torque convertor is going bad. Since you said your just bought it, did you get a warranty with the car? If you did, take it back and have them properly repair the issue.

check the fluid condition cause alot of problems accour only because of bad fluid which has not been changed for a long time ! i dont think torque converters go bad that easily because its main purpose is to provide intense amount of fluid and its very rigid
