Is the car an automatic or manual.
if its manual you may want to go under the hood and check the linkage. if i understand correctly, the car is stuck in second gear.
If you look directly to the right of the motor, and down a bit you wil se a bar that looks somewhat like this () with to prongs coming out of either end. the two prongs go into two holes which have cotter pints there holding them. If the bar () is not through one of the holes it will cause the transmission to stay in a certain gear no matter how you shift.
If the car is automatic, it may be an electrical shifting problem which if the car has a port next to the ash tray, can be checked at a foreign auto shop

Temp. gauge don't move past half on 1996 VW Jetta


Sounds normal. If the gauge moved further over, it would indicate an overheating problem, wouldn't it? Check that engine is at normal operating temperature after it warms up. If it is running too cold, your thermostat might be stuck open.

1996 VW Jetta wont start


Check to see if it's getting gas or spray some starter fluid into intake. If it fires, change fuel filter first and try it without starter fluid. If it doesn't start then change fuel pump.
