On Saturday I did 3 launch checks, and the TCU got hot, does anyone know why this can happen with only 3 launches?

model year? engine/trans codes? how are you launching? if these are brake launches in a tiptronic, then low or old trans fluid would be my first guess. Brake launch spins the fluid in the TC, which heats it up. I wouldn't do consecutive launches without some driving in between, and careful monitoring of fluid temp via obd11 or vagcom

año modelo? códigos de motor / trans? ¿cómo estás lanzando? si estos son lanzamientos de frenos en un tiptronic, entonces mi primera suposición sería el fluido trans bajo o viejo. El lanzamiento del freno hace girar el líquido en el TC, que lo calienta. No haría lanzamientos consecutivos sin conducir en el medio y un control cuidadoso de la temperatura del fluido a través de obd11 o vagcom

I think the problem is that it took a long time to get my foot off the brake, the car has 60,000km, 37,000 miles, I don't think the oil is old, on Saturday I will test with less time to see what happens, thanks for your opinion

I agree man, get those fluids changed and the car will thank you!!!! My old V8 gets two oil changes per year and boy she sounds and pulls much better with clean oils.

Estoy de acuerdo hombre, cambia esos fluidos y el auto te lo agradecerá. Mi viejo V8 recibe dos cambios de aceite por año y, vaya, suena y tira mucho mejor con aceites limpios.

the ZF8 transmission does not need an oil change, or at least not before 10 years
