Asked by Jan 15, 2018 at 11:30 AM about the 2006 Volkswagen Touareg 3.0TD

Question type: Maintenance & repair

I have a problem with my Touareg gearbox
between the gears 3rd and 4th, it seems
like it changes into another gear. It's a
power loss after 3rd but it doesn't register
as 4th, then there's another power loss
and it then registers as 4th, iv had it to the
garage where I purchased the 4x4, they
said it was fine and that's how the gearbox
is on that model..?? I can't see it myself.
The warranty runs out next month. If
anyone has or had the same issue I would
love some advise. Thanks dave

What box does it have?


Auto mate


Have you looked at having the oil changed in the gear box, this might help if it's the Automatic gear box fitted, this does help some times.

I haven't tried that yet mate. I'm just having the centre prop shaft bearing changed as that has a lot of play in it. They recon it's long life oil in the box. But if the prop bearing doesn't work then I'll go down the oil change route. Thanks for your input really appreciate it
