    Reverse won't engage - random

    After replacing the transmission in my 2000 1.8 tiptronic everything was great for the first 150 miles. Then at random times mostly when the fluid is warm Reverse will not engage. After shifting into R the engine revs. but no movement. When I put it in drive or Park then shift back into R it will move. No clunk or grinding occurs it's like I have shifted into Neutral. I have checked my fluid level and it is full.

    I'd run a scan on the trans with vag-com and make sure the solenoids are activating. It might be sticking and the 2nd attempt frees it up.
