I can't help but feel it's a cooling issue because it works fine while its cold. Any help is appreciated. I plan to do an oil and filter change soon. It's a mk3 Jetta 2.0...

    Hello people. I have a 2003 Jetta 1.8 auto-transmission. When the engine is cold, it began NOT to want to shift out of first. After a week it now seems to be a problem even after I warm it up. From some internet digging it sounded like a solenoid N92 problem. My vw dealer doesn’t replace a...

    My 05.5 shifts hard in all gears, but only about half of the time. Several times a week it gets stuck in a random forward gear, and wont shift. The shifter won't engage manual shifting either when it does this. If I pull over, turn off the engine, and wait about 30 seconds, the transmission...

    I am tickled to death tonight. After letting my Jetta just sit for months, I decided to try what I found in an article. I took my Jetta, the article, to my mechanic for shifting problems and had him replace Value Body and Solenoids. IT WORKED! Shifts great! This car started shifting hard at...

    I am desperate for an answer... I have an 02 Jetta 1.8t Tiptronic tranny and about 3 months ago (Feb 2013) I noticed my car started kicking me out of 4th and 5th gear while putting my foot down to accelerate, revving it up, almost redlining it. I did some research on here through the forums and...

    I have an 03 Jetta 1.8T with the 5 speed tiptronic 09A. I replaced all nine solenoids in the trans last March. At the time I was having no reverse and delayed shift between 2-3.

    Car: 1998 Manual 2.0L VW Jetta *Wolfsburg Edition* When trying to accelerate (usually in 3rd and 4th gears) the car makes a "clunking" noise and has trouble accelerating. It seems as if every time it "clunks" the gears in the transmission are momentarily un-engaged. In addition to the noise...

    I thought that I was getting a good deal, but all I got was ripped off! Now that I'm stuck with a lemon, I'm also getting the runaround on a diagnosis. Okay, here goes: it reads a misfire code, a coolant code, and one for the catalytic converter. My biggest concern is, it runs at 3k rpms at any...

    Hi All, We have a 2004 Jetta 2.0T. It has about 70k miles. Lately, it has not quickly shifted into reverse (from park). One friend has suggested it could be the transmission. Any opinions? Thanks very much.
