Hi Guys and galls,

Can someone please tell me if I have a throttle potentiometer on my engine either on the pedal or inline or on the housing i have a throttle cable linkage (but you never know:*)? My Engine is AES

Problem the gearbox is jumping like CONFUSED FROG atm harsh at times other times under load dropping down then straight back up, not dropping down when stationary.

I have had ATF changed and confirmed it the correct oil.

I fear that the box is failing and needs a recon, but first things first.

theres one code Torque Lock intermittent nothing else.


Would any other box fit Generic to this engine, (thinking golf equiv)
Anyone used a firm in Shropshire that does good work.
What questions do i need to ask the firm?

suggestions and options please folks.

Yeah you will have a throttle pot (or Throttle Position Sensor as they're sometimes called) on a '99 VR6, they're fitted to almost all petrol injection engines.

Golf gearbox wont fit out the box, the T4 box has a long housing coming off the diff that goes towards the drivers side wheel, the golf one doesnt. It may be possible to swap the T4 specific parts over to the golf box, but I dont know for sure, maybe post a thread asking 'can I convert a golf gearbox to fit a t4'.

Dont know if there are other boxes that would fit, possibly a Sharan box?
