Hi everyone, not had my T5 130 auto shuttle long and soon after, I noticed that 4th gear seemed to be slipping. The other day, it didn’t want to downshift from 5th and I noticed the auto gears on the dash were outlined bold and it did not show which gear it was in ie:- 1st, 2nd etc.
Shortly after this, the engine management light come on!!
Just after any suggestions or info before I take it to a garage.
I love the van and it’s perfect for our family. Just gutted this has happened after only 3months of having it.
Cheers,
Greg

most likely will be an expensive/garage fix.
Is there a possibility of warranty fix if it was a dealer buy?
miles? any fluid/filter changes on the auto? The autos are supposedly sealed for life, which is utter BS.
When it is fixed make sure to get regular fluid/filter changes
Google VW T5 auto flaring.

Mine did have flaring on the 2 to 3 change, many years back.Did it maybe 3-4 times.Only happened on light throttle.
Hasn't done it for years now.I have been doing my own oil changes

Recently had my auto fixed for a thumping into Drive issue, at 160K km.With other fixes done not much change from $3500 AU

Thanks for the reply.
It’s done 190,000 and I bought it private so no warranty!
The service history tells me that filters and oil change was done 5000 miles ago. Going to get it into a garage this week coming.
Cheers

Hello everyone. So, an update on my problem...
After 9 weeks, I finally got it back. Gearbox has been rebuilt with a new valve body too. 
Wiring loom was changed which was apparently a nightmare. Took them 3 and a half weeks. The starter motor had to be changed too. 
The day after taking it home, the glow plug light and emissions light come on. It feels fine to drive but I now think it’s an injector problem. I’ve noticed that it is smoky as ever. (White smoke)
I will be getting a diagnostics done tomorrow!

So, I’ve now sorted out the smoke problem!!
I noticed that the boost pipe running from the turbo to the inter cooler was loose.
It was the connection that goes directly into the turbo that was loose. Order a new one from Forge for around £45 and problem solved.
Van runs perfect now

runs like a dream. Had faults codes cleared and haven’t come back on either. 
The mechanic that fitted the new wiring loom never seemed to notice the loose boost pipe. Angry
Just happy it’s driving well, and good for the summer!
