My 2004 vw beetle with automatic transmission bangs into gear from the shift to first gear to second gear. Only does that when cold once it fully warms up the transmission shifts normally. I have no check engine light.

Hi there. Thanks for sending in your question today. If your transmission shifts hard into gear when it’s cold, the issue is likely some debris stuck in the hydraulic lines of the transmission. Having the transmission fluid flushed and filter changed should resolve this issue for you.
