Shifting

(2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI)
in Pinconning, MI on June 16, 2011
When you drive the car for the first time of the day, it doesn't want to shift out of 2nd gear (rpms just rev up) and doesn't go any where, then it shifts (eventually). Its and automatic transmission. But after it happens it seems to be fine. Someone told me it was that I needed to replace the hose running to the turbo. Is that true?

The turbo won't have anything to do with it. The first place to start maybe to have the transmission serviced oil and filter changed. In the course of removing the transmission oil pan to get all the oil out the transmission pan can be inspected for debris. If the oil is very dirty and your car has an external transmission oil cooler we remove a cooler line and and place it in a oil pan and run the engine topping up the transmission oil until the oil exiting is clean. Us VW approved oil!
