I’ve always seen myself as someone who knows what they’re doing when it comes to cars, at least to a certain extent. For instance, I only drive manual cars, because I’ve always preferred the feel of using a clutch and shifting gears manually. I think automatic cars are for people that don’t really have any genuine interest in cars at all and just need a car to get around.
Though I do love cars quite a bit and find them very interesting, there are still certain things that I don’t trust myself to do. For instance, when it comes to transmission repair, I am truly unskilled, and I always seek out the best Seattle manual transmission repair facility that I can find. That way I know my car will be in the best condition that it possibly can be.
Customer brought us his 2010 VW CC Luxury with shifting problems. The code retained in the vehicle was P2711 Implausiable Transmission Shift Sequence. Having gotten the run around by the local dealer he brought it to us for repair. We knew right away that the problem was in the front clutch assembly. This is not an automatic transmission even if it presents itself as one. The transmission is in reality a standard transmission with a clutch assembly in what would be the front pump assembly of an automatic transmission. The transmission has to be removed from the vehilce and the front clutch assembly replaced. It will require a special tool that you can get from VW to hold the clutch drum in place. This job takes about a day and the cost is under twenty five hundred dollars parts and labor. So if your in the the Seattle area and are tired of the run around with your VW Audi transmission give us a call. 206-624-1859 Kings Transmission Seattle.
My anniversary with my wife was coming up and one thing that I’d been promising to do for a while was to tune up her car, because she didn’t really know what to do with her car. When I went to go tune it up for her, I realized it need a little bit more work than I could do myself manually, so I figured I needed to take it somewhere near where we lived.
I really wanted to get her the best transmission repair Bellevue could offer, so I found a place that I could take it to and I got the car tuned up for it so that it wouldn’t have any problems anymore. It didn’t really feel like I’d done a whole lot, so I made sure to get her a few other gifts for our anniversary too! We went out to dinner in her car; it ran great!
I was beginning to think that my car might be on its last leg, figuratively speaking; if it wasn’t then it was sure starting to show signs on age, and perhaps poor maintenance. I wasn’t always that great with taking care of my car on time like I should have been doing, but I don’t have a great memory and I would forget to place appointments all the time.
Recently, I decided I was finally fed up with all of my car’s problems and I wanted to do something about it. I spent the day driving around looking for a place that’d fit my Seattle transmission replacement needs. I eventually found a place and they were able to help me take care of everything that was wrong with my car; it’s running pretty much perfect now.
My mind can get a little bit frazzled sometimes and occasionally this can mess up my plans, because I’ll make too many plans for things all at once and then everything falls apart. I do this with friends on accident all the time; I’ll make plans with one group of friends and another group of friends and realize at the last moment that I’ve double-booked myself.
The other week I got myself stuck in one of these types of scenarios, which was completely my own fault. I realized that I had a Lynnwood transmission repair appointment scheduled at the same time as my dentist appointment in Redmond. There was no way that I could make it to both, so I had to reschedule my dentist appointment for the next week.
It’s always a big ordeal whenever my family all gets together and has a reunion. There are people of all different types in my family, with all sorts of different jobs and personalities, to the point where it’s almost strange that we’re all somehow related to one another. Plenty of my family members have little quirks about them, some are interesting and some are annoying.
My uncle is a Seattle transmission mechanic, so he’s very wizened about cars and things like that and it’s pretty much all he ever talks about. My aunt is a cardiologist so she’s always talking about what’s healthy and what people should be doing to stay healthy. My grandpa, however, is the strong, silent type and he pretty much just keeps to himself.
- The Tiptronic was designed by Porsche as a viable alternative to the standard manual transmission that was the only option traditionally available. Blasted by purists as the “Poser’s Porsche,” these transmissions have become very popular in recent years, especially since Formula 1 cars have begun to use a similar paddle-shift arrangement. Porsche licenses this transmission design to several other manufacturers including Land Rover and Porsche’s own corporate fuhrer, Volkswagen.
- As it was originally engineered for much higher powered cars, the Tiptronic is well known as a stout transmission. Its use in practically every Turbo-four application in the VW family is testament to its strength, and many owners modify these cars to send more than 300 horsepower through the stock transmission with little more than a computer re-flash. Its planetary-gear design is as sturdy as it is on any automatic, and the only failures in stock transmissions are generally electrical in nature.
- One of the few weaknesses inherent to the VW Tiptronic has already been addressed by the company. Early transmissions were subject to hard 1 to 2 up-shifts, erratic 3 to 4 shifting and torque converter shudder. VW released a service bulletin to address this issue, advising owners to re-flash (re-program) the stock transmission computer with more recent software and smoother operation.
- In a few known instances, an important solenoid designated “N89″ has failed in the Tiptronic. The Tiptronic uses a number of solenoids in different combinations to engage the gears. First and Fourth gear share practically the same solenoid arrangement, except for the # N89. If this solenoid sticks in the 3 to 4 gear change, it is possible to wind up in first gear instead of fourth. This will cause rapid deceleration, like slamming on the brakes, but so far has yet to actually damage a transmission.

Came upon a problem that took us a bit to figure out which we want to share with builders who are having problems with the JF506E (09A) transmission.
After rebuilding the transmission we found on the test drive that our transmission had a 3-4 shift flair on light throttle as if we were not getting line rise.
We checked everything to do with shift timing and pressures. Nothing turned up. We went through the transmission a second time to include the valvebody. Again nothing.
After a lot of man hours we found that the computers ground runs through the brake light circuit. Our VW had a bad light. Upon replacement everything changed.
Had a problem when we went to order parts for a 2006 Dodge Sprinter rear differential. Calling the local dealer and then a lot of other dealers we couldn’t locate a part number for the crush sleeve needed to set pinion depth. Every dealer wanted to send us shims due to the fact that the parts locator is incorrect. I lucky to find Dan at Bellevue Dodge here in Washington who went the extra mile. Correct part number is 1-68000011aa. Hope this helps someone that finds themselfs in the same situation.
If in the Seattle area bring your Sprinter to Kings Transmission Seattle.
