How did the Transmission ECM get water on it? It is inside the van. More likely water in a connection to the transmission itself. Do you have the sound deadening pan installed?

The same fellow I recommended for the transmission earlier has an ECM, I had it in my hand the other day.

I checked on car-part.com ant there are 17 of them listed. Looks like there's a VIN split for it. I'd live chat with each one and see if you can get the part number off the box they have. They seem to be going for around 150 USD.

Looks like here's one on eBay:
http://m.ebay.com/itm/182156895741?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368

I would also call German Transaxle for one.

That sucks, I definitely feel your pain .

Anyone here know the ins and outs of TCU compatability and software on T4 TCU? I don't even know where mine is except it has something to do with Horned Frogs.

Patricia's getting tired of Regina, probably,because it's named after a mean girl..

Now need a 098927731B TCU for 1993 Eurovan

Found a used 1993 Eurovan Transmission and had it installed and was on the road again Tues Aug 2nd and Wed Aug 3rd. Clocked over 600 KMs before being caught in a stunningly horrific electrical storm for 1/2 hr immediately after turning off Hwy 1 to go to Souris MB.

Was great to be back on the road after previous ordeal replacing trannie.
Spent a pleasant afternoon and then overnighted in Souris and struck out for the Maritimes the next morning.

After less than 20 minutes of driving I knew something was wrong, much to my chagrin. Long story short -- tried to limp back to Regina for repairs and ended up being towed in again -- end of day Thur Aug 4 to learn "Westy' had sustained water damage during the storm.

Mechanics were able to get her up and running by end of day Fri, BUT the display panel on dash fades in and out and so they now figure it would be best to replace the transmission control module as it seems to have been damaged. There was lots of water around the plug and ... So, now in search of a TCU, part # 098927731B for my 1993 EuroVan.

Patricia - if you go up to the Forums button or the Top Bar you will see a PMs: x messages or PRIVATE MESSAGES link where people can converse with you privately

Sorry if I am out of line with this, no offense intended. It looked like you were getting a little scrambled between forum posts and messages.

Itsamoto -- and all ...
I did consider buying the van in Calgary, until my Chilliwack mechanic found one for me in Hope. Fingers crossed it arrives here by Tues -- of course Monday would be better -- time will tell. Smile

Checked out the one linked to in Kelowna - can't recall (I'm been to so many sites and ads) why no action there; think it might have been a standard.

Checked out German Transaxle in Portland -- prohibitive cost -- as was/is GoWesty.
Connected with someone back east (Sarnia) -- close, but Hope option is the closest fit; same year, same code, so fewer alterations required.
Fingers crossed. Smile

I am confused, bill/Wildenbeast.
I posted this yesterday around 4 pm.

Thanks, Bill.

However, my regular mechanic - Gary, in Chilliwack, tracked one down for me in Hope. A used one with 125,000 KMs on it. Having it shipped now.
Fingers crossed all goes well.
Having work done by Cal Ross of Premier Motors in Regina -- very knowledgeable and good reports on him -- nice guy.

Expect delivery AND installation to be complete by this time next week, meanwhile I'm getting to know a little bit about Regina, Sask. Smile

I also sent/tried to send a personal reply to you saying I was in contact with Rob in Sarnia.
New to posting on Samba and am challenged to figure out how to reply to specific posts on here.
Fingers crossed you see this one.

I just sent you a PM of a source in Canada I think will have the transmission you need so check your messages.

For Canadians to bring in anything from the stateside is cost prohibitive -- it really stings. No free shipping, duty and a less favourable exchange rate all hurt a lot. Try and find a local solution - and there are more vans of your vintage here in Canada as well where 92-94 GLs here are dirt cheap.

I think if you can find any good auto transmission from a 2.5L -- you should be good as long as they provide the transmission computer as well. If you don't get the transmission from JohnnyVW in Kelowna (he's a real swell guy BTW whom I bought some parts from) -- then consider that $1500 van in Calgary. It's close enough to me that I check it out for you -- and then its only a couple hours away from you now too. You could buy it, use the transmission and the sell the carcass. Lots of good independent repairs shops here that can do this work -- I might know somebody who can do this on the side for you as well.

they would have different codes for different configurations..
some early 92-93 EVs were offered with a 2.0l 4cyl.
maybe a code with and without a AT cooler.
but most of the differences would be in the final drive ratio of the ring and pinion and not specific to the AT internals.

jut to add to the conversation I 'think' this is the AT rebuild kit if you go local.

So tired ... will update tomorrow.
Myself and my mechanic both heard of and looked at http://germantransaxle.com/ early today. Very reputable I believe ... still means bring in from us with our exchange rate not even close to par.

MAY have a lead on something in Canada ... will see how tomorrow unfolds once they pull the transmission ... seems it may have just died /exploded from with in. No rational reason for it to date.

Mañana, p

I'm sure the German Transaxles are units are superb. But they are $4K plus core. You still have to pay the removal and installation.
.
I'm curious, how did your 098 trans fail? What are the symptoms of its demise?

Is there no trans rebuilder in the local area for you?

I recently got a quote of $4K-USD from a local trans rebuilder in SoCali who is old school and who knows the AGM family (01P and 01M) gearboxes very well. And that price includes R&R.

Patrippia,

I just skimmed this thread, but if you're looking for a fully rebuilt transmission, or having someone rebuild the one you have, have you talked to these guys?: http://germantransaxle.com/

I've come across numerous positive references to them in various places, both online and off.

Best of luck in your search!

Update:
Sent message to that van you posted link for Mr Brown ... Yes, trannie is still in it; he has no idea what the code is. Seems to think code is on left side not top.
On top would make more sense, but then what do I know. LOL
His van is in Kelowna and has 200,000 miles on it.

THINK mechanic in Regina is going to pull it this pm or in the am and perhaps then we will have the code.
Really don't want to go thru process of changing from automatic onto manual at a garage; easy enough for a guy to do in garage at home with unlimited hours of sweat equity to invest ... One guy said he did this in just 3 days of labour ... No way can I afford that kind of shop time. LOL

Needs to be quick and easy ... Fewer things to go wrong, no need to run harness in unusual way, etc, etc. !!
Likely to develop a whole new set of challenges, I'm no match for, down the road. Will keep looking for an actual match ... And once it's out see if possible to rebuild or if really beyond repair.

Seems to me that VW has made in unnecessarily complicated; if the 5 different code numbers are for manual 4 & 5 speed, diesel, automatic and ? Adding an M, D, A or ? To the code number would have made it all much simpler.

Apparently the stamp on 'my' transmission was poorly done and is illegible. Mechanic tried to figure it out using a Vindecoder (??) -- to no avail.

A lot of suggestions here about changing the van from automatic to manual ... Way out of my depth on this. Assume harnessing and more would be involved and would take significantly more parts and shop time, yes no?

I have driven a standard before ... So that's not the issue.
Now wishing I'd taken Shop instead of Art in high school ... Back in the day. LOL

It would be a 098, no? Can they not rebuild it? Or are some hard parts broken?

There's not that much difference between the 098 and the later 01P in terms of usual rebuild parts.

Call Makco transmissions?


This would be my vote. Find a local transmission rebuilder with a good reputation and rebuild what you have.

This is what the previous owners did with my eurovan - total cost was about $2800. The rebuild kit was like 400 something.

And if one shop does everything they will give some sort of warranty. If you buy a transmission from one shop and have another mechanic to install it then the shop that does the labor can't warranty the replacement.
