    Cold stiff gear change

    New to site, just bought a 2012 Passat BlueMotion 2.0 TDI manual. She covered 70k 2 owners. When car is cold, the gearing is stiff, knobbly until warm then its slick and smooth. One time, no gears were available until engine warm ??? Only had 5 days and she is back in garage under warrenty, need some advice so, if they would, take the ****.

    Sounds like it's got the wrong ( too thick ) gearbox oil in there.

    Yes I would agree with Gaz that changing the gearbox oil to the correct grade will probably sort it PLUS we have had brilliant results for decades adding gearbox Slick 50 on cars without a limited slip diff.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
