Q: Transmission issues in the third gear on a 2014 Skoda Octavia

asked by on

My dad has a 2014 Skoda Octavia 1.6 TDI, which is a Volkswagen jet in the US. It only has 40,000 miles on it. It has a 6-speed manual tranny that goes bad on the third gear. It kept punching in there.

A: All the Volkswagen products are notorious f...

All the Volkswagen products are notorious for having the shifter bushing problems. So, have the shifter bushings checked. They are plastic and can wear out really fast. If it's not that, it's a third gear going out on the transmission. So, you'd want to pray it's not an internal transmission fault. To verify the problem, I would have a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect the car in person. They will be able to diagnose your gear issue and let you know what needs repair.

Q: Replaced the transmission with a 04 tranny and it shifts funny when I I'm coming to a stop. It's like a straight shift sometimes

Hi there. The problem is the generation of the transmission is different, meaning the wiring harness inside the transmission is different. However, the range selector will not cause the transmission to not shift to the lower gears. The newer version...
