    Might just be the lockup solenoid.

    If everything comes together, I would really like to turn it in to a 5 speed and keep it for a few more years. It would be a cool project as well as get the auto out of a car that is getting in to higher miles. As the auto is still working, it may be worth something as well and help fund the project.

    There is a tsb on the torque converter for the 2006 I wonder if it is the same part carried over. Might give you more information. Also a fluid and filter change might help as well.

    Fluid and filter are pretty new. Less than a year.

    Did you do the fluid change ? I know a shop did mine by using a infrared thermometer on the pan for trans temp and it needed fluid when it was checked by using with a vag com for the trans temp.

    Yup. Was a pain in the butt, but am pretty confident I did it correctly.

    Used this guide (great site):

    Just an update... 5 speed is ordered for this old girl! Should be a cool project.

    -Transmission
    -Performance DMF and Sachs clutch
    -Pedals, lines, sensors, shifter, inner CVs, tranny mounts, clutch slave cylinder, etc..

    -Malone will do the software side.

    Performance DMF instead of a SMF? That was the better call or you just want the stock feel?

    Frans at Dutch auto parts was the one who brought it to my attention.. he suggested it if running any sort of tune.

    Interesting. Most the time I've ever looked at replacing a DMF it's always recommended to put a SMF as they are more reliable but maybe this one is built better? Maybe it's a LUK DMF?

    I did like the SMF on my MK4 (think you ended up with that one). Responsive, although quite rattly on a TDI!
