2006 Volkswagen Passat Question: I just had my thermostat replaced. My car jerks a bit in stop and go traffic

 

Question

 Rookie

only when it changes gear from 1st to 2nd and back. Does this car need
transmission fluid refill or change? Is this a serious transmission
problem? I am very scared now. When I took it in the engine light was on
but they said it was the thermostat P2181 code.
Please advise.
