Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
The soudn seems to be transmission but I'm not sure. It squeals when its hot and when accelerating from 2nd - 3rd for a split second. Then when going up hill it slams the gear down quite hard when shifting down. To me it seems like a dry transmission...any suggestions?
Hi if its just second to thrid then the clutch is slipping on thrid gear look at the boxes oil level is important but look at the colour is it red and tranperant as this is ok if its brown its a sign of the clutches slipping i would try a stall test on thrid gear first and if its ok second gear [manually] see is the engine stalls at the correct rpm if you thinkabout it imagine you are in thrid gear in a manuual box and suddenly drop into second it would be hard shifting it could also be a faulty thrid gear solenoid yates210456
