2001 S8, 84k, changed transmission fluid and filter within 2k, also recoded to sport mode via VAGCOM, no transmission codes. I get a hesitation when shifting from park to drive, drive to reverse, reverse to drive, or park to reverse. Also occasionally appears when starting from a dead stop, such as from a red light. If giving the car gas when it hesitates there tends to be a harsh engagement into gear. This is intermittent, in that sometimes I go days without having an issue. The transmission otherwise shifts really well, there are zero issues during normal driving. This issue was NOT present before I did the fluid and filter. I searched and couldn't find similar symptoms. Thoughts?
