    Auto g/b problems

    Hi. I have a 2002 golf mk4 GTI 1.8t with auto/tiptronic box. It has just started to stick occasionally in 1st. Gear when first started from cold. Driving for a few minutes seems to sort it out. Any ideas? Help!

    Fluid and Filter changed recently? Does it NEED it?

    It may hold the hear longer, but not NOT shift out of 1st at all, when cold.

    Fluid is thicker when cold, a dirty/clogged filter will cause the gears to hold longer
    because it's taking longer to build pressure due to restricted fluid flow when cold.
    Once warmed up, it will be fine; if that's the case, that's usually a sign that the
    fluid and filter need changed.
