Having problems with your 1999 Volkswagen Passat ?
When driving up hills, the car will judder quite significantly and it seems to struggle to get into the right gear. The car is a 1.8T automatic VW Passat. We have also experienced a similar sensation when on motorways and the car is also not always able to accelerate away from junctions as it used to. Whilst this is not all the time, it is increasingly the case on all hills, but is less obvious or common on the flat.
Check the oil level and filter on the gear box and service it . if that is ok then its the trouque converter or worse the gear box
