Well, finally got my baby into the shop here in town. They told me the code was showing the 4th gear had an incorrect ratio. Can anyone tell me more about this?

No, they didn't give me that, but I can ask for it when I go get the key.

Is it an expensive fix? I can't get to the link you posted here at work. :(

Since its throwing transmission codes, its going to be an automatic transmission.

Yeah, but I think we're actually talking about clutch packs, solenoids, wiring, etc. having to do with the auto.

D2 showed his thread on his clutch replacement on an O2j, which is a manual.

While that may be true concerning the link that he posted (I didn't read it), the codes shown in his post (the attachment), the one on which you commented, 17118/P0734 is for an automatic, and the explanations posted are right out the Ross-Tech Wiki. So I think we agree on that.:) The 006552 shown by Kilroy is a wholly separate issue, too high friction on an intake cam.

So, does it need a new transmission? Does anyone know about how much they cost?

It doesn't necessarily need a whole new xmsn, in fact, it probably doesn't require a new one, but it will require further diagnosis. Could be as simple as a bad solenoid or faulty wire.

Took my baby to the VW dealer - they think it's the throttle body. Guess I'll wait to see what they say when the call today. Anxiously awaiting......

Yep, valve body.
They changed the oil & coolant, too so it should be good to go (just picked it up yesterday) but noooo, the check engine light came on this morning! Boo!:(
