VW PASSAT 1.9TDi AUTOMATIC. 2005.I got gearbox reconditioned

Customer Question

VW PASSAT 1.9TDi AUTOMATIC. 2005.I got gearbox reconditioned by amatuers(for 1000 pounds in east London?! lol).When in reverse on idle it sort of 'pulsing'(revs go up and down(between(###) ###-####rpm)).Normally it happens when reversing back up the hill,then if i give it more revs -then it sort of evens out.It does not normally happens on the level surface!
Those mechanics who reconditioned gearbox,telling me its engine problem.The other mechanics looked at it and they 're telling me -its internal gearbox problem.
Is this somewhat common that you might have come across?
