  1. VW Jetta / Bora MKIV 1998 Euro,1999.5 US -2005
    I've had my MKIV for almost 10 years now, and as of last year she started showing transmission problems - mostly rough shifts. Took it to the dealer, but ultimately a transmission shop and got her back in working order. Just recently started having problems again. Before I go back in to have her...
  2. VW Jetta / Bora MKIV 1998 Euro,1999.5 US -2005
    So, A few months ago I bought a 02, 2.0lt, automatic, and I love her. No real issues at all. Only 100,000kms on it. However, I've never liked automatics, and I've heard the AT on these cars are notoriously faulty. I stumbled across the exact same car for sale, and the lady wants to get rid...
  3. Jetta Troubleshooting
    I have a 2009 MK5 GTI automatic that started acting up on me yesterday morning. The car wouldn't start yesterday morning. I assumed dead battery (I was right) gave it a good jump and it fired up just fine. I drove it this morning and it felt like it wasn't shifting at all and when I stopped...

  5. VW Jetta MKIII 1991–1998
    Does such a thing exist? I can't quite figure it out. I bought the car back in July 2015 and it had issues with reverse "locking" in gear. If you try to gas it (in reverse), it immediately pops out. Over the course of the last 30 days, I've noticed it's been more difficult to get it into 5th...
  6. 2011-present VW Jetta MKVI
    2010 jetta tdi, transmission is bad. Anyone covert one of these to a manual before? Any input on doing so? Dealership wants $7800 for transmission that's before labor. Closest pull out is a bone yard in ky, i'm in ia. Little nervous about that type of purchase. Thanks!

    Hello all! New member here. My girlfriend has had her MKIV 1.8T Jetta for about 2 years now and she loves it... when it's not being a pain in our asses. Our latest endeavor with her baby has now somehow left me with a clutch engagement problem. About 4 or 5 months ago my buddy (who is a...

    Hi everyone. I have a nice 95 2.0 turbo build and love it. I want to build a turbo whip with a techtronic automatic transmission. I know it will be hard but want to know if anyone knows if a tech trans from a 1.8 t will bolt to a mk 3 2.0 block ? I am not crazy . I am also building a 20/20 2.0...

    Hi I'm new to the site, and to the volkswagon world. I recently bought an 03 1.8t and the engine runs fine and when I go to put it in gear it's like the clutch is slipping. I priced the clutch assembly and they wanted 760 dollars. Alittle bit pricey lol. So my dad had an 02 2.0l and I was goin...
  10. VW Jetta / Bora MKIV 1998 Euro,1999.5 US -2005
    I have a 2002 Jetta with a 09A 5-Speed Tiptronic Transmission that I bought from a mechanic with 160k miles on it. The car required a long time to warm up (if not it would stay in first gear) so I started with the easy stuff, like changing the transmission fluid. I emptied out 5 liters of dark...

    I have a leak in my transmission. Since it is a sealed system, what do I need to do? I can feel the car idle harder when i'm at a light. When i put it in neutral its fine. Ideas? costs? :/ thanks!
  13. Jetta Troubleshooting
    Changing out my passenger CV axle and saw what looks to be my gearbox's oil seal sticking out. It's a green mettle protrusion w a lip that is sticking out about an 1/8 in from the housing. I would imagine this should be flush. Pried on it a bit to see if it moves and it doesn't. Parts break...

    okay, I am new to this site but I drive a manual 09 jetta. I have been having issues when it is colder out, even if I let my car warm up, to where I will go to shift into 3rd gear and it will completely lock me out of 3rd so I have to go back to 2nd and then try again. has anyone had a similar...
  15. VW Jetta MKIII 1991–1998
    Hey everyone, so I know that my 98 Jetta is prone to transmission issues as I've been reading on this forums for a while. And it doesn't help that I commute 170ish miles a day round trip to work. But I brought my car to my friends shop on Friday and I had bought Lucas transmission additive for...

  17. VW JETTA OWNERS & ENTHUSIASTS INTRODUCTIONS
    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...

    So my Girly has been good to me since the build. But I can't say that I have been nice to her. Had a good summer going on rides, trips, ezoo in NYC and the track. But the track is where my trans finally took a dump. So now I'm thinking what can I do to upgrade my drive train. She's a 02 1.8t awp...
