sup yall , i ended up buying a 18 q50s 3.0t from a friend , he had blown the differential doing donuts , today i replaced the differential and now the car drives forward under its own power. The issue i am having is with the trans , if i drive it in Manuel the car drives fine , the issue is when i put it in "D" or just drive , the trans feels like it struggles to get into first , but thats only when i start from a dead stop , if i am on the freeway and put it into drive it drives fine and it feels normal , i did read the codes on the car , and no permanent codes showed up , i cleared them without writing them down on accident so i cant provide those at the moment. Would anyone be able to at least get me pointed at the right direction as to what it could be , i understand not having the codes is dumb but the alternator belt ripped on the test drive lol so i gotta get that fixed before i put more miles into the car to get the codes to pop up again.

I believe there is a way to reset the trans for it to do a relearn. Maybe someone more knowledgeable could get in on this?

Without DTCs, I couldn't begin to say. I doubt this is a reset/relearn issue, especially since your friend blew the differential doing donuts.

Are you insinuating that his friend's driving habits may be the reason for the transmission issue?

Donuts are no way to go fast. Going fast is all that matters. Racecar.

update time yall , ran my scanner again and the car throws no codes , ive put 200 miles on the car already , some things i forgot to mention was that the car did sit for like 1 year before i got around to fixing it just because i was busy with other projects lol , i will be doing a trans flush and check the trans fluid to see how it looks. Honestly im not too sure whats wrong with it since it shifts fine in M mode but none the less , thats the basic situation i am running into , i will keep updating yall with whatever i find
