There are four things that control your automatic transmission shifting. First: Speed sensor Second: Throttle Position sensor Third: Automatic Transmission Modulator. Fourth: Viscosity (How good) your Transmission Fluid is. One of those three are probably bad, first start with replacing the fluid and filter in your transmission (Take to a professional for best results), second,look up voltage specs for the Throttle position sensor, test it (It's on your intake ductwork) If it's not within spec, you'll have to adjust it. If it's fine, replace your speed sensor (Easier than the modulator, and it can still register correct speed and send off a bad signal to PCM, causing incorrect shifting) and lastly, replace the modulator. That should fix your problem

Can a 2013 VW Beetle Auto Trans be flat towed?

No automatic transmission driven vehicles can be towed any distance at all without damage to the transmission gears. You have to lift the drive wheels off the ground in order to tow it. On some vehicles you can disconnect the drive shaft (if it is not front wheel drive.) The reason that it causes damage is because when the drive wheels turn, the interior gears of the transmission turn too and since the transmission is not working, there is no lubrication being pumped inside the transmission. The lack of lubrication causes gear damage.

What revolutions occur in the movement of a car?

The Crank shaft turns and causes the cam shaft to turn, the pumps to turn, the alternator to turn, the transmission gears to turn, the transmission causes the drive shaft to turn, the drive shaft causes the differential to turn (in rear wheel drive models) this turns the axles and the axles turn the wheels. In a front wheel model, the transmission turns the axles shaft that turns the wheels. In a 4x4 the transmission splits to turn the front drive shaft and the rear drive shaft. (then the differential and the axles etc. The other thing that is counted is the steering wheel but it never really completes a whole revolution.
