Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

Jumps when I pull away first thing in the morning, no problem when warm (1999 Jetta GL)

First thing in the morning or if my car is left to sit for a while. No **** when I reverse but when I put it into drive to pull away I get a **** like transmission sticking or something.
Any ideas?  Expensive to fix?

The same thing happend to my 1996 jetta trek. when u put it in reverse to start off anywhere its perfectly fine. but when u put it into drive it stalls for a few seconds than jumps.
The transmission is going to go out on you anyday.
mine blew on me about a month when this started happening to me.
i was driving and the car just randomly went into neutral, tried all the gears and all i had was reverse.
BLOWN!

took it to 2 different places to get it fixed, 1st place asked $3500, 2nd place asked $2500.
too much money so we had a family friend put a rebuilt tranny in for $1600.

You have a trait of a 99 TDI. It's been found to happen ONLY to late 99 TDI's, and it's a software glitch. If you want to spent the money (I did and HIGHLY recomment it) to chipping/reflashing the ECU it should go away

96 jetta gl hard to start


Check the anti freeze level. It is to low the coolant sensor (not the temp. gauge sensor they are to different sensor) can make the computer to thing that the motor is to hot ( after it sits a short time the steam it the motor thinks it hot than what it is) making the fuel to lean. If it set longer but not to cold the sensor is not in the anti-freeze to will think it is colder and put to much fuel in.
